Andy Berg Headshot

Amid a heated recent debate around conference realignment, the Southeastern Conference has extended commissioner Greg Sankey’s contract through 2026.

The extension comes as Sankey oversees the addition of Oklahoma and Texas to the conference.

"College athletics is in the midst of a transformational period, and the SEC is fortunate to have a highly impactful leader to guide us forward at this critical time in our history," conference president Jere Morehead, the University of Georgia president, said in a statement. "He has effectively introduced change and advancement for the conference while respecting the institutional traditions that make the SEC unique. His leadership and ability to foster collaboration through the COVID-19 pandemic helped establish a framework for all of college sports, and those leadership skills will be critical as we move forward with change in the years ahead."
