Pac-12 media rights are still being negotiated, but an agreement could be close.

Washington State president Kirk Schulz told the Mercury News’ Jon Wilner that the league hopes to have a deal in place by mid-March.

“My sense is we need to get it done in March — in mid-March, hopefully,” Schulz said. “The longer it goes, the more noise there will be.”

The noise has been growing in recent weeks as potential options for the Pac-12 have come off the board. CBS and Turner have reportedly bowed out of negotiations with the conference and will not be apart of the league’s future.

The Pac-12 has also been dealing with rumors surrounding its programs potentially headed for the Big 12.

Potential expansion has also been part of the Pac-12’s media negotiations. The league is reportedly in discussions with San Diego State and SMU. However, programs like Boise State are reportedly being kept at “arm’s length.”

The Pac-12 is hoping to have its future solidified in the coming weeks.
