The University of Texas as found their replacement for outgoing athletic director DeLoss Dodds. Surprisingly, Dodds will turn over the reigns of the most profitable department in college athletics after 32 years to Arizona State AD Steve Patterson – and not West Virginia AD Oliver Luck. While Oliver wasn’t too interested in discussing why his candidacy fell short, he was more than will to talk about the College Football Playoff Selection Committee, of which he is one of thirteen panelists.
As for “Mr. College Football” Tony Barnhart, he was willing to weigh in on the new UT athletic director and the challenges he faces – like what to do with Mack Brown and Rick Barnes. Tony also talks with Brien Straw and Nate Griffin about the rumors that current Alabama head coach Nick Saban tops the Longhorns wish list as heir apparent to Brown. When does Tony see Nick leaving Tuscaloosa for Austin? Check out the INSIDE COLLEGE FOOTBALL podcast to find out.
