WCC promotes Holzman to commissioner

SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) -- The West Coast Conference has promoted Lynn Holzman to be its new commissioner.

The conference announced Monday that Holzman would replace Jamie Zaninovich, who will leave later this week to become the deputy commissioner and chief operating officer of the Pac-12.

Holzman has spent nearly two years in the WCC, most recently as executive senior associate commissioner and chief operating officer. She oversaw day-to-day affairs and led the development of the conference's three-year strategic plan.

Holzman has previously spent 16 years working for the NCAA. She last served as director of academic and membership affairs.

Holzman played basketball at Kansas State.
