Slive's contract with SEC extended until 2009

BIRMINGHAM — The Southeastern Conference extended the contract of commissioner Mike Slive, a deal that could keep him in charge of one of the most influential and lucrative leagues in college sports until the middle of 2009.

Slive replaced Roy Kramer as SEC commissioner in 2002 after serving as Conference USA commissioner for seven years.

The contract extension was approved recently by the SEC Board of Presidents and announced Thursday.
