SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Social media erupted following the news that George Kliavkoff will replace Larry Scott as the new Pac-12 Commissioner.

His first day in office will be on July 1st. However, between now and then he will work alongside Larry Scott to ensure a healthy transition.

One of the biggest tasks for Kliavkoff will be securing a much better television deal than his predecessor found. The Pac-12 Networks needs a bigger platform to further advance the conference.

The Pac-12 Conference is in a precarious position as Kliavkoff joins. The issues facing the conference and college athletics is unprecedented with drastic changes likely forthcoming as Kliavkoff is well aware.

The expectation for Kliavkoff is high considering the mess that Scott left him. The Conference must adapt and change fast if it hopes to stay in contact with the likes of the SEC. The Pac-12 for many years now has been seen as the bottom dwellers amongst power five conferences.

Kliavkoff has his hands full.

Social media, for the most part, is pleasantly optimistic that Kliavkoff will handle most issues seamlessly. However, the jury is still out.
