If West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck impresses a seven-member advisory committee, Luck is expected to be UT's next athletic director, multiple sources tell Orangebloods.com.
Oliver Luck, a former Oilers QB and Houston Dynamo GM who got his law degree at UT, has strong Texas ties.
Those 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.
