The Big East has hired CBS executive vice president Mike Aresco as its commissioner.
Aresco, who becomes the conference's fourth commissioner, will be formally introduced Wednesday during a press conference in New York. He replaces John Marinatto, who resigned in May after fewer than three years as commissioner.
"We are fortunate to have Mike Aresco as our new commissioner," University of Cincinnati president Greg Williams said in a press release. Williams was the chair of the commissioner search committee.
"His breadth of experience and depth of knowledge in intercollegiate athletics will continue to move the Big East forward on a successful path," Williams added. "The Big East has enjoyed a great history. Mike Aresco will help assure the conference of a vibrant future.”
