Gene would be good. The conference commissioner position has transitioned to being more business/corporate oriented in recent years due to the financials, but from a practical competitive standpoint the Big Ten needs to pair that with someone with an AD mindset.

Their path is further expansion over the next 5, 10, 20 years, and they need a leader capable of balancing financial and athletic potential for maximizing the league's potential and brand.

Who wants this job moving forward with the Wild West culture college sports has become? At least with the Bears he will deal with athletes that are beholden to a contract and a league that is bound by similar rules that can be enforced.
