Report: Texas will fire athletic director Steve Patterson.

The Austin American-Statesman is reporting that Texas will fire athletic director Steve Patterson.

Patterson is expected to meet with University of Texas president Gregory L. Fenves Tuesday morning.



The move comes amid dissatisfaction amongst Texas supporters regarding the hiking of ticket prices, and reports that the Texas athletic department lost $2.8 million dollars during the 2013-2014 fiscal year. The last year the Longhorn athletic program had lost money since the 1999-2000 fiscal year.

A plane carrying a banner saying "Patterson must go" flew above Royal-Memorial Stadium before the Rice-Texas game on Saturday.
