KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott filed a flight plan that would have put him in Kansas City on Sunday night, apparently to talk conference expansion with Kansas.

But the private plane which carried Scott and deputy commissioner Kevin Weiberg to Oklahoma and and Texas on Saturday and Sunday did not make its scheduled 9:48 p.m. CDT arrival at Kansas City International Airport.

According to its flight plan, it was supposed to fly in from Austin, Texas.

An official at the airport said apparently the flight had been changed or canceled.

Kansas athletic director Lew Perkins has refused to speak with reporters since the school announced earlier in the week that he would retire in September 2011. Jim Marchiony, an associate athletic director at Kansas, said Perkins was “working around the clock” to find a major conference for the Jayhawks if the Big 12 continues to crumble.
