He took over the Big 12 not long after the conference nearly fell apart because of defections by Nebraska, Colorado, Texas A&M and Missouri to other leagues.

Under Bowlsby, the Big 12 signed a 13-year television deal with ESPN and Fox that has led to record revenue for conference members. The Big 12 recently announced $220.1 million in distributable revenue for its 10 members for the 2013-14 fiscal year.
