Report: Texas AD DeLoss Dodds to announce retirement Tuesday

DeLoss Dodds will announce Tuesday afternoon that he will step down next August as Texas' athletic director, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Dodds denied similar reports earlier this month as the Longhorns were in the public eye for their early-season losses to BYU and Ole Miss, but Kirk Bohls cites three well-connected sources who confirmed that Dodds will announce his retirement on Tuesday.

"He's going to announce it tomorrow," one of the well-placed sources said. "They were going to do it today but decided to wait because they didn't want to detract from the passing of (legendary former Longhorn quarterback) James Street."

According to the report, Dodds will stay on as athletic director through Aug. 31, 2014, and will remain as a consultant through 2015.
