UW statement on Pac-12 TV deal

Here is a statement from UW athletic director Scott Woodward on the pending new Pac-12 TV deal:

“I am very excited about the new Pac-12 multimedia agreement. Commissioner (Larry) Scott, presidential leadership and Creative Arts Agency have done a terrific job leading the negotiations. The value of the agreement indicates the strength of all 12 institutional brands and the signifigance of our conference nationally.

“As a self-sustainting athletic department accepting no funding from our university, we rely on many different streams of revenue to support 21 sports programs and over $8 million in annual student-athlete scholarships. This new agreement will help us keep pace with the rising costs of tuition, travel and national competition, enabling us to continue providing a first-class experience for over 650 Husky student-athletes into the coming decade.”
