Bob Bowlsby has been chosen as Commissioner of the Big 12 Conference.  Bowlsby comes to the conference after having spent the last six years as director of athletics at Stanford University.

Texas Tech University President Guy Bailey said “Hiring a person of Bob Bowlsby’s caliber reflects the commitment the universities have to the Big 12 Conference. Athletics departments under his leadership and guidance have achieved tremendous success, and there is no doubt that will carry over to the conference office.”

Athletics Director Kirby Hocutt said of the decision “The presidents and selection committee have made a tremendous choice in Bob Bowlsby.  He is one of the most well respected leaders in the profession.  He is engaged with the change that confronts the collegiate athletics landscape from conference realignment, to television contracts and the postseason football format.  Bob has been part of two trendsetting conferences and there is not a better leader to help position the Big 12 Conference for the future.”
