The much-maligned Larry Scott went over the $4 million per year mark last year, as the conference's revenues continued to increase. He's the first conference commissioner to reach this number. Maybe more ridiculous is that Pac-12 Networks president Lydia Murphy-Stevens is banking $1.25 million this year
