WCC extends contract of Zaninovich

The West Coast Conference extended the contract of commissioner Jamie Zaninovich on Friday.

Zaninovich, who is in his sixth year after being named the league's second commissioner on March 9, 2008, has been extended until May 31, 2017.

"The West Coast Conference Presidents' Council and Executive Council are pleased with the progress that continues in the WCC under the leadership of commissioner Jamie Zaninovich," WCC presidents' council chair Ronald Gallagher said. "We have seen success with conference realignment, the addition of competitors such as BYU and growth in media opportunities and exposure. We look forward to a even more robust and competitive schedule going forward with the addition of the University of the Pacific as the WCC's 10th member this summer."
