AUSTIN (KXAN) - The University of Texas was quick to step in Friday after an online report surfaced saying University of Texas Athletics Director DeLoss Dodds was stepping down.
"Absolutely not true," said Nick Voins, senior associate Athletics Director for Communications, citing a story published on Orangebloods.com that said Dodds would step down by the end of the calendar year.
"I love my job, I love the people I work with, and I love The University of Texas," Dodds said in a statement. "I have no immediate plans to retire, but when I do, we will let everyone know well in advance so that people do not have to speculate."
Dodds became the school's ninth athletics director in the fall of 1981. During his tenure, the Longhorns have claimed 14 National Championships and 108 conference (Southwest and Big 12) titles in nine different sports.
Earlier this week, Dodds pledged his confidence in head football coach Mack Brown, despite a 40-21 loss to BYU.
The loss also prompted Brown to fire defensive coordinator Manny Diaz less than 24 hours after the game.
