Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff will present the conference members with a new media rights deal, as first reported by Jason Scheer of Wildcat Authority.
The Pac-12’s grant of rights deal ends on June 30, 2024.
Sources indicate to WildcatAuthority the Pac-12 will hold a meeting tomorrow. Numbers will be presented, but there is pessimism within the conference.
This could be George Kliavkoff’s last stand in keeping the conference together.

Last week Colorado officially came back to the Big 12 for the first time in 13 years, starting in 2024. The Buffaloes will become the 13th team in the conference as Oklahoma and Texas depart for the SEC next summer.
Since being in the Pac-12 Colorado football has struggled with just two winning seasons in that time frame. They’ve since hired former two-sport professional athlete Deion Sanders who has re-energized the program with a highly touted transfer class. They’ve gone from a 1-11 laughing stock to one of the most exciting teams in one off-season. It’s difficult to imagine that without Sanders, Colorado would be making this move.
The remaining Pac-12 schools’ future in the conference are up in the air. The new media rights deal presented to the members is vital to the direction the Pac-12 head towards. San Diego State, SMU and Tulane are all schools that the Pac-12 has been linked with but nothing has gained steam.
UCLA and USC will depart for the Big Ten in the summer of 2024, the same time Texas and Oklahoma head to the SEC.
