K-State AD: School remains committed to Big 12
Saturday, September 3, 2011
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Athletic director John Currie says Kansas State remains committed to the Big 12, whether that means in its current configuration or through future expansion.
Currie tells The Associated Press in an interview Saturday that he believes the nine schools that will make up the league after Texas A&M departs prefer to see the Big 12 endure. He also says the conference could add one or more members, but the primary goal is to achieve stability.
His comments come one day after Oklahoma president David Boren acknowledged multiple conferences have shown interest in the Sooners. Boren said he hopes to decide soon, possibly in a matter of days, whether to remain a member of the Big 12.
