I was a little surprised when the Longhorns decided to hire Steve Patterson as their new Athletics Director. I don’t have anything against Patterson but I just assumed the Longhorns would have hired Oliver Luck as their new A.D.
I am curious as to how much the Patterson hire would have been debated and discussed if not for everyone’s attention immediately shifting to the news surrounding Mack Brown.
While Mack Brown’s departure has been dominating the headlines, John Canzano of The Oregonian has written a column that should bring some attention back to Patterson. It is an interesting perspective, and I would highly recommend checking it out. It can be found HERE.
