Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott receives contract extension through 2018

Larry Scott will be the commissioner of the Pac-12 Conference for at least another five years.

Scott, who has held the position since 2009, was granted a contract extension Monday that will last through the 2017-18 academic year. The decision was voted on by the Board of Directors, which includes Pac-12 university presidents and chancellors. Scott was also named the executive chairman of Pac-12 Enterprises, something that helps provide exposure for the athletic programs and student-athletes.

Scott’s tenure as commissioner has seen some of the biggest changes in conference history. During his time, the Pac-12 has expanded, launched a cable and digital network and started an annual football championship game. The 12-year television contract he negotiated was worth about $3 billion. Scott has even looked to take the conference overseas with the Pac-12 Globalization Initiative.

In a statement, Scott said that he is “honored and gratified by the support” of the league.
