BIRMINGHAM — The Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors announced today that SEC Commissioner Mike Slive and the conference have agreed to a contract extension through July 31, 2012.

“Commissioner Slive has been an absolutely great addition to our conference,” said University of Kentucky and Southeastern Conference President Dr. Lee T. Todd. “He is providing great vision and directing the SEC to a new prominence in college athletics. I am thrilled we have locked him in to lead our conference for years to come.”

In August 2009, the SEC will begin its landmark 15-year agreements with CBS and ESPN that will make the league the most widely distributed conference on television in the nation. These arrangements will also secure the financial health of the SEC and its member institutions for years to come.

    Are we going to get Brent Musberger covering games as a result? He’s worse than LSU fanboy Gary Danielson
