Genshaft: Aresco has 'great vision' for Big East



The Big East has made official the hiring of CBS Sports vice president Mike Aresco as the conference's new commissioner, and he'll be formally introduced Wednesday morning in a news conference in New York City.


USF President Judy Genshaft, who is chair of the Big East's CEO executive committee, was not available for comment but was quoted in the Big East's announcement: "The search committee identified some truly outstanding candidates and we are most pleased that Mike Aresco will be the person who will take the Big East to future success. He has all the characteristics that we need in a commissioner. His career has been filled with achievement and success in intercollegiate sports. Mike Aresco knows the Big East and has a great vision for our future."

Lots more coming on Aresco and what it means for the Big East ...
