Jim Delany has just a few days left as the commissioner of the B1G. After 30 seasons in his role, he’s decided to step down from his position and allowing someone else to take control of the conference.

Delany is praised for all of his significant accomplishments during his career as commissioner. He expanded the league from 10 teams to 14, partnered with FOX to create the Big Ten Network and has landed multi-billion dollar television deals for the league.
