Big 12 Commissioner Weiberg Stepping Down

DALLAS (AP) -- Big 12 commissioner Kevin Weiberg said Thursday he is resigning next month to take a job with the Big Ten Network.

During nearly a decade on the job, Weiberg was credited with doubling the annual revenue distributed to its member schools to a record $106 million last year. He started in December 1998.

"There is never a perfect time to depart a position like this," Weiberg said. "I am proud of the growth and progress of the Big 12 over the last nine years."

Texas Tech athletic director Gerald Myers said Weiberg brought unity to the Big 12.

"It was a shock, unexpected," Myers said. "It's definitely better as a result of his leadership the last nine years. We'll definitely miss him and wish him the best."

No replacement has been named.
