BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (AP) – Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner Beth DeBauche has received a contract extension.

DeBauche has a rolling contract that now runs through the 2024-25 academic year. OVC officials approved the contract extension last week during the league’s spring meetings.

DeBauche (pronounced De-Bush) was named commissioner on July 29, 2009. She had been working at the NCAA for seven years before taking this job.

She also worked as a Vanderbilt assistant athletic director for compliance from 1994-96. She also is a former Southeastern Conference associate commissioner who worked for that league from 1996-2002.
