Monday, July 17, 2017

Frisco, Texas — Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby told reporters Monday that he expected to sign a contract extension through the 2024-25 season.

Bowlsby, speaking at the Big 12 football media days at Ford Center, said his potential extension would last through the Big 12's current television rights deals.

"My health is good," said Bowlsby, who became the fourth commissioner of the conference in 2012. "I feel like I'm a pretty young 65, so I'll stay at it for a while. I like what I'm doing. I like the schools."
