The Big 12 board of directors met today to begin the process of finding a full-time replacement for interim commissioner Chuck Neinas. A search committee, expected to be chaired by Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis, will oversee the selection process. No timetable has been set to find Neinas’ replacement.
In a Twitter post, Kansas State president Kirk H. Schulz called the session an “excellent” meeting with “good discussion on conference future and commissioner search.”
TCU and West Virginia are scheduled to join the 10-member league on July 1, the same day that existing Big 12 members Texas A&M and Missouri join the Southeastern Conference.
