Big 12 Conference commissioner Dan Beebe is working on an agreement to leave his position, the Kansas City star reported Wednesday night.
The Star cited two sources with knowledge of Beebe's decision.
The Oklahoman reported Tuesday that the University of Oklahoma would only commit to staying in the Big 12 if the conference ousted Beebe as commissioner and added regulations on ESPN's Longhorn Network.
Beebe was one of five BCS commissioners absent from the Collegiate Commissioner Association meetings in Chicago on Wednesday, a source told ESPN.com's Andy Katz. The only BCS conference commissioner in attendance was Jim Delany of the Big Ten -- the only BCS conference not dealing with expansion.
The source said the CCA expected Beebe to be out and former Big Eight commissioner Chuck Neinas would replace him.
