Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott: Nine conference games make for toughest path to championship
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott addressed the media Saturday ahead of the 2015 Pac-12 Football Championship Game at Levi's Stadium, in which he heralded the tough conference schedule that Pac-12 football teams participate in.
"No one in America has had a tougher or longer path to a football championship than Stanford or USC," said Scott in reference to the nine-game, Pac-12 football schedule played by the respective schools in 2015.
Additionally, Scott praised new Pac-12 V.P. of Officiating David Coleman after his first season at the post. The former NFL officiating executive was hired by the Pac-12 last April in an effort to bring an increased, full-time devotion to football officiating. "I'm delighted with what David Coleman has done so far," said Scott, and said his hire was evidence of the priority the Pac-12 has put on officiating. "I think we're on the right path," said Scott.
Commissioner Scott also voiced his excitement for the future of the Pac-12 Football Championship game, which has been solidified to take place in Levi's Stadium for at least the next two years.
