UT To Hire Steve Patterson as A.D.

Updated: Tuesday, November 5 2013, 08:44 PM CST

AUSTIN, Texas -- The University of Texas at Austin will hire Steve Patterson as the new men's athletic director, replacing DeLoss Dodds who is retiring after 32 years.

Patterson, 55, has served as athletic director at Arizona State University since 2012. Previously, he worked for more than two decades as an executive with the NFL's Houston Texans, the NBA's Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers and the Houston Aeros hockey team. He also served as president of Pro Sports Consulting.

Patterson earned both a bachelor's degree in business and a law degree from UT Austin.

"Steve Patterson emerged as the perfect candidate to build on Texas' athletic success and DeLoss Dodds' legacy," said UT Austin President Bill Powers. "Steve helped build an NBA championship team and brought the Super Bowl game to Houston. Far more important, he’s run a winning program at Arizona State that places students first and is committed to their lifelong success."

The appointment is subject to approval from the UT System Board of Regents, which is scheduled to meet Nov. 12 and 13. Patterson would begin at the university later this fall.

Powers plans to formally introduce Patterson at a news conference on campus this week.
