Pac-12′s Scott getting a lot done, and making a lot for it

USA Today reported Monday that Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott pulled down some $3.1 million in compensation during the calendar year 2011, almost double what powerful SEC commish Mike Slive made. The newspaper said the pay broke down as $1.575 million in base compensation and about $1.5 million more in bonus and other pay.

Scott received about $300,000 more than Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany. Scott’s pay was no doubt related to the $3-billion contracts he helped negotiate with Fox and ESPN in 2011.

By comparison, former Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen was making a reported $590,000 in 2008 just before he retired.
