Big Sky office moving to Ogden

OGDEN - Six university presidents and the new commissioner have decided to move the Big Sky Conference offices from Boise to Ogden.

Incoming Big Sky Conference Commissioner Doug Fullerton said Thursday that the move will happen this spring.

"They (presidents) want the office moved and running by the first of the fiscal year, which would be July 1," Fullerton said.

The presidents of the six schools that will remain in the conference after Boise State and Idaho pull out in 1996 decided Wednesday that Ogden is the best home for the league.
