PROVO — The West Coast Conference announced Monday that it plans to continue to operate remotely for the rest of 2020.

The WCC also announced it will be moving its corporate offices. The league has been headquartered at 1111 Bayhill Drive in San Bruno, California, since 2010. Its 10-year office lease expires at the end of August.

“As a timeline on returning to a permanent office space comes into focus, the conference will provide further details,” stated a release.

The league has decided to continue operating remotely to limit the staff’s exposure to a new public office setting. This decision will also save the league a considerable amount of money. The WCC enacted cost containment measures due to the financial impact of the cancelation of the NCAA tournaments last spring.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way we operate, the way we think and the way we live,” West Coast Conference Commissioner Gloria Nevarez said. “We continue to have thorough conversations with our membership as we plan for the 2020-21 season. While working remotely can present challenges at times, we have effectively continued our operations in this environment over the last four months. Our mission is to serve our institutions and most importantly our student-athletes. We continue to emphasize the importance of collaboration with colleagues, while prioritizing the health and safety of everyone. The expiration of our office lease provides the flexibility to make the decision to work remote for an extended period of time. We will continue to monitor and take direction from local health officials to evaluate the appropriate time to return to operating out of a permanent office.”
