Texas AD search focused on one name
Texas’ search for a new A.D. is seems to still focused on one name.
Ever since DeLoss Dodds announced his pending retirement on Sept. 30, the hunt for his replacement has been centered around West Virginia’s Oliver Luck.
According to the Dallas Morning News’ Chuck Carlton, nothing has happened to change that.
West Virginia’s football problems and WVU’s Tier 3 media rights bid snafu this past spring haven’t knocked the shine off Luck’s star. And Texas’ on the field issues haven’t made the job any less impressive to top candidates, either.
UT hired Korn/Ferry International to handle the search, but Carlton hints that KFI won’t have to spend a lot of time vetting candidates. A job like Texas doesn’t exactly require a shotgun approach.
For his part, Luck has been non-committal when asked about the job.
According to Carlton, Texas could move quickly — perhaps within a couple of weeks of the Longhorns’ Nov. 9 date with WVU. If it does, Luck will almost certainly be the choice.
If the search goes on, it may mean the Horns are headed in a different direction.
