Former Secretary of State Condeleezza Rice is a big sports fan, but she's not interested in becoming commissioner of a West Coast college sports conference.

Rice was approached about the job running the Pac-10 conference and was flattered by the opportunity, her spokesman, Colby Cooper, said Tuesday. But Cooper says Rice wants to pursue teaching and writing at Stanford University. She was a professor and provost at the Pac-10 school before joining the Bush administration.

Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen is retiring July 1 after 26 years. Pac-10 football champions traditionally compete in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, against a team from the Midwest.

Rice is a big football fan and once said her dream job would be NFL commissioner. Before Roger Goodell succeeded Paul Tagliabue as commissioner, Rice's name was sometimes mentioned as a possible candidate.
