Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott "isn't going anywhere anytime soon, based on a dramatic sentiment shift within the conference -- a shift rooted in Scott's reinvention of himself and his management style," according to Jon Wilner of the San Jose MERCURY NEWS. For Scott, "gone are the days when policy-making flowed one direction: from the conference office to the campuses." Scott said, "We were probably guilty of looking like we were making decisions that make sense for the conference overall but without enough of feel for what the impacts are on campus. We've gotten better at that, but we've got more work to do." Wilner noted Scott "seemingly has more support internally than he did a year ago." To describe Scott as "entrenched for the long haul might be too strong, but he's clearly on solid ground these days." Scott's contract expires in the spring of '22. There have been "no discussions about an extension" (San Jose MERCURY NEWS, 10/2).
