SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said that his conference does not plan to embark on any further expansion plans right now as the league prepares to welcome two additional members starting next summer, and amid another historic round of college football realignment that saw five Pac-12 schools announce their intention to leave.

Here is the latest on the realignment front.

"We're in an enormously healthy place," Sankey told Paul Finebaum. "We're not in the middle of current movement efforts. [It's] very clear there’s not something out there that we should be reaching for or engaging in our own level of recruitment."

Sankey also boasted that the SEC remains in contiguous states and doesn't need to expand geographically in order to maintain its place as college football's dominant conference, saying: "We don’t need to be in four time zones to generate interest on the West Coast, or really across the globe."
