Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott joins us noon today for a live chat.
Since taking over two years ago, he’s revitalized the once sleepy conference. He’s overseen the conference’s first expansion since 1978 and added Utah and Colorado. Last year, he extended an offer to Oklahoma, Texas, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech and was rebuffed.
Recently, the Pac-12 has been linked with Oklahoma in talks about expanding and many believe the Pac-16 is on the horizon.
“I have made clear my vision that the health, stability and future of college athletics will likely include further consolidation and realignment,” Scott said in a press release last week. “While I can not predict if and when this might make sense for us, we will listen to and evaluate any scenario that would benefit our member institutions, our student-athletes and our fans.
Scott also secured the richest media rights deal agreement in college sports history and brokered a 12-year, $3 billion contract with ESPN and Fox. He’s also creating the Pac-12 Network and Pac-12 Digital Network, which gives the league even more exposure and could potentially be a financial windfall.
