Mike Slive was a fixture in the SEC as the commissioner from 2002 to his retirement in 2015 and was responsible for the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M to the conference as well as seven straight national championships in football at one point. However, the 76-year old was diagnosed with prostate cancer three years ago and that was part of the reason he retired.
It looks like he has made a full recovery though according to a report from WBRC in Birmingham, Ala.
Slive will turn 77 in July and it looks like he will have plenty to celebrate on his birthday.
