Mark Emmert statement on the passing of Mike Slive

“Today we lost a great friend and colleague. Mike made a remarkable impact across all of college sports. His role creating Conference USA, leading the SEC and helping shape the modern college football landscape has forever changed collegiate athletics for the better. Moreover, Mike was a good friend to so many of us who have been lucky enough to work with him. Most importantly, Mike was an incredibly proud and dedicated family man...as a husband, father, and grandfather. We will miss him terribly and we extend our condolences to his family.”
