University of Texas president Greg Fenves rarely talks athletics with the media. His position of athletics being the front porch of the university means that while it is outside of his expertise, he recognizes the extreme importance of Longhorn athletics to the school, fans and alumni. So when he speaks on the subject publicly, it’s with good reason.
The Austin American-Statesman is reporting today that TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte will be hired as the men's and women's AD. Del Conte began at TCU in 2009. Mike Perrin, who currently serves as Texas AD, has held the position since 2015.
