Report: Steve Patterson Leaving Arizona State For Texas AD Job

That was fast.

Arizona State athletic director Steve Patterson will leave the Sun Devils to become Texas' next athletic director, Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com is reporting this morning. Patterson was chosen over current West Virginia AD Oliver Luck.

Luck was supposedly the front-runner to replace DeLoss Dodds, who announced that he'd be stepping down from the position next August. It was reported last night by Kirk Bohls of statesman.com that the school had narrowed down its decision to the two candidates.

Patterson has been athletic director at ASU since 2012, when he replaced Lisa Love.
