Waterloo Native Bowlsby pegged to lead the Big 12

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Waterloo native and former UNI and Iowa athletic director Bob Bowlsby has been named the new commissioner of the Big 12 Conference.

Bowlsby has been the athletic director at Stanford University since leaving Iowa in 2006.

Bowlsby will encounter some challenges in his new position--with the Big 12 working on a multi-billion dollar television deal with Fox--and maybe looking to add more schools. Bowlsby leaves Stanford in June for his new position with the Big 12.
