BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Longtime Gulf South Conference Commissioner Nate Salant is retiring.

The league announced Wednesday that Salant has told the GSC’s Board of Presidents of his plans to retire effective July 1.

Salant has led the Division II conference since 1992. Under his leadership, the GSC started the NCAA’s first conference-owned and operated TV network.

West Florida President Judy Bense says: “Nate leaves the Gulf South Conference in excellent shape financially and he has been a big part of growing our conference in recent years.” Bense is chair of the GSC executive committee.

Salant is vice president of the Division II Collegiate Commissioners Association.

Six Arkansas schools broke away from the league after the 2010-11 school year. Five new members are joining, including Florida Tech in football only.
