Texas president Gregory Fenves is in the process of firing athletic director Steve Patterson, according to the Austin-American Statesman.

According to the report, former Texas linebacker Mike Perrin will take over as interim athletic director until the school hires Patterson’s successor.

Citing a source, the Statesman’s Kirk Bohls said that a lack of support from the Texas coaches was the “final straw” for Patterson at Texas.

Patterson hired both football coach Charlie Strong and basketball coach Shaka Smart during his brief time at Texas.
