SEC presidents and chancellors, including USC president Harris Pastides, met in Atlanta today to discuss the topic of expansion. The group decided the league is not taking in any new members right now. Following is the release from the SEC.
Statement from Dr. Bernie Machen, Chair, Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors:
“The SEC Presidents and Chancellors met today and reaffirmed our satisfaction with the present 12 institutional alignment. We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league. We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion. No action was taken with respect to any institution including Texas A&M.”
