Florida State Axes Trustee Chair Who Spoke Of Big 12 Switch

Coincidence?

Matt Conner of SBNation is reporting today that FSU has ousted its trustee chair, Andy Haggard, and replaced him with Allen Bense, a former member of Florida’s House of Representatives. Florida State has been rumored to be considering a conference switch to the Big 12, and Haggard had not been shy about expressing his views on the possibility.

Whether or not he lost his job due to his outspokenness remains to be seen, and it is not yet known what stance FSU will officially take after the Board of Trustees meeting today.

Many view that if Florida State leaves the ACC, it will trigger the next wave of conference realignment.
