According to sources at rivals.com, Oliver Luck is expected to interview for and accept the University of Texas Athletic Director position later this week. Check it out:
Sources say Luck is the frontrunner from a group of names put forth by the search firm Korn/Ferry International to the advisory committee last week that also includes Arizona State athletic director Steve Patterson, who got his law degree at Texas.
Luck’s interview with the committee could come as early as this week. If all goes as expected, a contract could be finalized Nov. 13 or 14, when Texas regents are already scheduled to meet.
Nothing is expected to be announced before Texas and West Virginia meet in Morgantown on Nov. 9.
