The Big 12's board of directors will meet in the coming days to discuss the leadership of commissioner Dan Beebe and how to get remaining members to make a long-term commitment to the conference, a source confirmed to ESPN.com's Andy Katz.

Though Beebe's status has been described as "tenuous," no decision has been made on his status.

A report on Tuesday stated that in order for Oklahoma to stay in the Big 12, it wanted to have ESPN's Longhorn Network regulated and Beebe removed as league commissioner.

That was before the Pac-12's announcement later that it would not expand.
