AUBURN, Ala. — It was announced Thursday that Greg Sankey would replace Mike Slive as the SEC's next commissioner.
Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp believed it was a smart hire by the league.
"I'd like to congratulate Greg Sankey for being named commissioner of the Southeastern Conference," he said Thursday. "I think it's a great decision by our presidents and athletic directors. He's a first-class person. He'll do a great job leading our league. Obviously (he's) stepping in some big shoes there with Commissioner Slive. So congratulations to him."
