Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott has worked hard to change his conference's image from a stodgy, left-behind-the-times league to one of the most dynamic and cutting edge groups in sports.
He is getting paid handsomely for his hard work, according to a study by USA Today.
He earned almost $1.9 million in salary and bonuses in 2010, which is more than any other commissioner received, the study revealed.
The Big Ten's Jim Delaney made $1.8 million, the ACC's John Swofford made almost $1.5 million and the SEC's Mike Slive made just more than $1 million.
Scott's salary is a rich sum by almost any standard, but particularly for a job in college athletics.
But if there is any guy who deserves that kind of large paycheck I'd say it is him, what do you think?
