UW comment on new commissioner

Here’s the official statement from UW athletic director Scott Woodward on the hire today of Larry Scottt as the Pac-10’s new commissioner:

“I think the future of the Pac-10 Conference is in good hands with the hiring of Larry Scott as its new commissioner. It is imperative that we continue to pursue ways to maximize the profile of the conference and keep the welfare of our student-athletes on the forefront of what we do. The Pac-10 maintains tremendously successful programs, develops some of the world’s top athletes and, as a group, maintains an exceptional academic profile. Larry understands that maximizing revenue is a critical factor in our ability to provide a first-class student-athlete experience. He certainly has a handful of challenges ahead of him, but I share President Emmert’s confidence that Larry is the right person to lead the Pac-10 forward.”
