Scott is said to be self-quarantining while continuing to operate in his role as commissioner.
The announcement comes the same day the conference said they will be playing a conference-only schedule in football this fall.
Scott, 55, has been the Pac-12’s commissioner since 2009. A recent report said he could be pushed out by school administrators.
