Big 12 Reportedly Still Looking to Expand with New Gonzaga Talks

Oct 9, 2023

Expansion looked to be on pause for the Big 12, but it appears the conference wants to get even bigger.

Last year, Big 12 commissioner Brett Yormark met with Gonzaga about potentially adding the basketball powerhouse to the already hoops-heavy conference. Then, during this summer’s realignment frenzy, Yormark said he had more discussions with the West Coast Conference mainstay, as well as fellow basketball giant Connecticut.

Those talks never led to a formal offer to join the Big 12, with Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, and Utah ultimately joining the conference. At that point, Yormark said the Big 12 was done expanding “right now.”
