Sources: Luck Is Lead Candidate For Texas AD, With Decision Possible By Mid-November

WHOA THERE: In Austin, Kirk Bohls writes, "Disregard the notion" that Luck is "a done deal as the new Texas athletic director, although I still consider him the front-runner and best person for the job." The seven-member advisory committee to Powers "won’t even begin interviews until this week, and they will talk to candidates from all five of the major football conferences, including" Patterson, who "might have the second-best chance of succeeding" Dodds. A source said that Louisville AD Tom Jurich, who "has said he’s not interested," and Michigan State AD Mark Hollis "are not being considered" (AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN, 10/28).
