The executive director of the Bowl Championship Series is confident the BCS could boot the Fiesta Bowl out of the system college football uses to crown a champion before its contract with the game expires in three years.

The Fiesta Bowl released an internal report Monday that uncovered “excessive compensation, nonbusiness and inappropriate expenditures and inappropriate gifts” and fired longtime CEO and President John Junker.

Bill Hancock told The Associated Press in a phone interview Tuesday that the BCS “will not be associated with this kind of behavior.”

The BCS has set up a task force to help determine if the leaders of major college football want to continue doing business with the Fiesta Bowl.

The Fiesta Bowl is in the second year of a four-year deal to be part of the BCS.
