The Pac-10 Conference has made it official today that Colorado will join the conference for the 2011 season.
So that means the conference will officially become the Pac-10 next season.
Here’s the Pac-10’s statement from commissioner Larry Scott:
“We are very excited that Colorado will be joining the Conference in 2011. Our plans all along were for them to join the Conference in 2012, so this puts the Pac-12 ahead of schedule, which is great news. With Colorado and Utah coming on board next year we are tremendously excited about the future of the Conference.”
There will be more meetings among athletic directors and presidents and CEOs next month when there could/should be more finality to issues regarding how the conference will now be split into divisions and scheduling.
Jon Wilner has more on the move here.
