University of Texas AD Is Not Stepping Down

Deloss_Dodds_2013A Texas spokesperson has denied a report that Longhorn athletic director DeLoss Dodds would step down at the end of the year.

Chip Brown of reported Friday that Dodds would move from the athletic director’s chair to a “consulting role” for the Longhorns by the end of 2013. But Longhorn spokesperson Nick Voinis told’s Dennis Dodd that the report was “absolutely not true.”

A Dodds departure would hypothetically be another blow to Mack Brown’s chances of retaining the Texas head coaching job. Dodds has consistently supported Brown — including in the wake of Texas’s embarrassing loss to BYU last Saturday — despite the Longhorns’ struggles in recent seasons.
