IRVING, Texas (AP) The American Athletic Conference has extended the contract of Commissioner Mike Aresco for three years through June 2025, the league announced Monday.
Aresco, a former CBS Sports executive, was hired as Big East commissioner in 2012 during sweeping conference realignment that ultimately forced the league to rebuild and rebrand. The American was formed in 2013.
The conference is again working to rebuild after more realignment. Earlier this month, Houston, Cincinnati and Central Florida announced they would be joining the Big 12 in 2023.
