IRVING, Texas (AP) – Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says he expects to be at the conference for a long time and would rather shape the future of college sports in his current job than as NCAA president.
Bowlsby has been a vocal advocate of NCAA reform. He practically overshadowed President Mark Emmert at the NCAA’s state of the union news conference during the Final Four.
As Bowlsby’s profile has grown, so has speculation he could be a candidate to succeed Emmert at some point.
Bowlsby is committed to the Big 12 and thinks he can be “more effective in supporting and leading change from my current location. And that’s the vantage point from which I want to do it.”
