New Texas AD Patterson Not Anticipating Significant Changes In Athletic Department
Published November 8, 2013
THE EYES OF TEXAS: In Austin, Kirk Bohls writes Patterson on Thursday "came off as more down-home than uptight." Bohls: "Patterson said all the right things, except he said nothing about wholesale changes in coaches or staff. But the bet here is he will. Sooner than later. Gentlemen, start your resumes." Arizona State Associate VP/Public Affairs Terri Shafer said that Patterson "made more than 100 personnel changes in an athletic department that barely numbers 180." That is "monstrous turnover." Patterson said, "We did make changes at ASU. I think it was a culture that, in some respects, had to change." At UT, Patterson "needs to know the fans' patience is short." There "clearly is a new sheriff in town." A source said Dodds had "zero" input in the search for his replacement (AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN, 11/8). ORANGEBLOODS.com's Chip Brown wrote, "How much change is coming? I was told no one from the athletic department -- no coaches or current AD staff -- were consulted in the hiring of Patterson" (ORANGEBLOODS.com, 11/7).
