SEC signs commish Greg Sankey to multi-year extension

The Southeastern Conference and commissioner Greg Sankey have reached a contract extension through at least 2028.

Sankey, 58, has been the commissioner since 2015, when he took over for Mike Slive. His extension was approved by the presidents and chancellors of the 14 SEC schools.

“I am grateful for the continued opportunity to serve and support the universities and student-athletes of the Southeastern Conference and I appreciate the confidence placed in me by the SEC’s presidents and chancellors,” Sankey said.

Sankey helped to author a new television contract with ESPN/ABC that will pay the SEC up to $3 billion per year beginning in 2024.

Sankey has presided over 48 national championships won by SEC schools since he took over.
