AP Source: Texas AD Dodds to retire August 2014


JIM VERTUNO, AP Sports Writer

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — After 32 years of building Texas into the wealthiest and one of the most powerful college programs in the country, Longhorns athletic director DeLoss Dodds is set to retire.

A person with knowledge of Dodds' decision tells The Associated Press that Dodds is to announce plans Tuesday to retire next August and move into a paid consulting role. The source spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt an official statement from Dodds and university officials.

Now 76, Dodds has overseen a program that has won 14 men's national championships and 107 conference titles. Under Dodds, Texas has expanded and improved athletic facilities, moved from the old Southwest Conference to the Big 12 and signed a $300-million agreement with ESPN to create the Longhorn Network.
