Big 12 wants Missouri to stay

The Big 12 board of directors has expressed a “strong desire” for Missouri to remain in the conference.

The Big 12 said in a release all 10 current members and TCU, which will join next season, participated in Monday’s meeting.

Last week, the Missouri Board of Curators gave Chancellor Brady Deaton the authority to move the school out of the Big 12. Missouri is considering a move to the Southeastern Conference.

The Big 12 board also reaffirmed its plans to have its members grant their most lucrative television rights to the conference and discussed exploring a conference network.
