Commissioner Val Ackerman's Statement on the Retirement of Creighton's Bruce Rasmussen

The BIG EAST Conference congratulates Bruce Rasmussen on his retirement and extends our deepest thanks to him for a lifetime of service to Bluejay student-athletes, coaches and supporters and to college sports at large. Bruce’s contributions to the BIG EAST over the past eight years have run far and wide: they include committee service, championship host duties, leadership within our AD ranks, and of course the successful assimilation of Creighton and its proud athletics, academics and service traditions into our storied league. The “new” BIG EAST is a better league with Creighton in it, and for that we owe Bruce an enormous debt of gratitude.
