According to a source with close ties to the search committee for a new athletic director, the University of Texas will hire Steve Patterson as its next athletic director.
"He knocked the interview out of the park," a source said of Patterson.
Patterson has deep ties to the University. Patterson received a bachelor's degree from Texas as well as a law degree. And he grew up in Houston.
Patterson has executive experience at several professional franchises, including the Houston Rockets, Houston Texans and Portland Trailblazers.
