BIRMINGHAM, AL -- Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive has plenty of unfinished business.
Slive tells The Associated Press he has agreed to run the powerhouse league for "at least a couple more years," continuing his decade-long tenure. His contract was set to expire July 31, five days after he turns 72.
He's working on new TV contracts for the SEC and says those meetings are "scheduled throughout this summer." Slive also expects conference commissioners to gather in September to begin finetuning the new four-team playoff system, including revenue distribution and selection committee criteria.
Those are expected be hot topics on Tuesday when Slive speaks to open the league's media days which run through Thursday. Newcomers Missouri and Texas A&M take the podium on Day 1.
Nick Saban and national champion Alabama talk Thursday.
