Big East To Introduce Mike Aresco As Commissioner On Wednesday

With the news becoming official Tuesday that the Big East Conference has a new commissioner in former CBS Vice President Mike Aresco, the league has decided to introduce its new headman Wednesday in a press conference starting at 10:30 p.m. ET.

The presser, which will be held at the New York Athletic Club, will be followed by a teleconference that will start at 11:30 a.m. Both conference's will feature Aresco and Gregory Williams, President, University of Cincinnati, Chair of the Big East Commissioner Search Committee.

Arseco comes to the Big East after being part of CBS since 1996. At the network, he was responsible for all the college programing. Arseco was a big part of CBS' NCAA Tournament deal with Turner Sports.

This background is expected to help the conference negotiate for a better television deal.

Aresco replaces interim president Joseph Bailey III, who took over after John Marinatto resigned in May.
