Pac-12 Will Replace Commissioner Larry Scott
The Pac-12 CEO group has finally decided it's time to move on from Commissioner Larry Scott.
Well, it finally happened, even if it did take way too long for it to happen.
The Pac-12 Conference is parting ways with Commissioner Larry Scott, according to a news release the conference put out last night. Scott’s contract had been scheduled to run until June 2022, but he will be departing on June 30, 2021 and he will be paid for the final year of his contract.
Now, don’t let the spin machine from the Pac-12 office fool you.
Larry Scott has basically been fired by the Pac-12 Presidents. The amazing thing is that it has taken this long for the conference schools to dump Scott. But, for anyone who follows the Pac-12, it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
John Canzaro of Oregon Live/The Oregonian has been writing about Scott’s propensity for lavishness for some time right alongside Scott’s incompetency.
Sure, if you’re one to believe press releases from the Pac-12, Scott’s tenure was filled with accomplishments but, by any account, almost all of the “Key Milestones” listed in the press release came early on in Scott’s tenure.
Amazingly, there’s no mention of Scott’s expensive Vegas suite or the private jet he uses to travel in the release. That’s about as much of a shocker as the fact that Pac-12 Networks still isn’t on DirecTV.

"..but he will be departing on June 30, 2021 and he will be paid for the final year of his contract."
45 years as a mediocre -- with sometime flashes of brilliance -- software developer and the most I got on consulting gigs was two weeks "in lieu of". This buttwipe takes home a free year and that fat, under-achieving FB coach of ours still sucks down a king's ransom and has a sideline gourmet catering biz as well.
It ain't fair, I tell ya!
