Sankey named next SEC commissioner

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Greg Sankey just got handed keys to the most luxurious kingdom in college sports. Sankey was announced Friday as the eighth commissioner of the Southeastern Conference in his 13th year of involvement with it — serving as Executive Associate Commissioner and the SEC’s COO. He succeeds two visionaries in college sports. Roy Kramer the longtime commissioner who instituted a conference championship game and helped usher in the framework for the BCS, and Mike Slive who in concert with ESPN created a lucrative television network launched last summer and cleaned a conference dealing with major compliance issues.
