Bob Bowlsby Officially Announced As Big 12 Commissioner

First, the tease:

At that point, there wasn't much mystery as to what the press conference was about. By then, multiple outlets had reported Stanford AD Bob Bowlsby had accepted an offer to become the Big 12 commissioner.

However, now it's all official and such. To the press release!

Bowlsby will begin his duties June 15, succeeding Acting Commissioner Chuck Neinas. "All of the institutions of the Big 12 want to recognize Chuck's great contributions as acting commissioner, helping us during a challenging time and providing a stabilizing force to lead us to today's announcement," said President Hargis. "We cannot thank him enough for his efforts."

Bowlsby will be introduced to the world on Friday at 11 a.m. ET. The press conference will be streamed live over at the Big 12 website, for those interested in such a thing.
