The Pac-12 conference has announced that it will hold a press conference at 11 A.M. Thursday morning to announce the appointment of a new commissioner.

Current commissioner Larry Scott has been serving out the last remaining months of his 11-year tenure.

It was announced in January that he would no longer be the conference commissioner.

A Pac-12 executive committee, including Washington State University President Kirk Schulz, has been running a national search for Scott's replacement.
