University of Texas athletic director Steve Patterson fired: AP

A person with direct knowledge of the decision says Texas athletic director Steve Patterson has been fired.

The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the school had not announced the move.

Patterson was let go after just two years. In that time, the storied football program has changed coaches but is still struggling. He has also clashed with fans over increased ticket prices and a "loyalty" system that angered longtime season-ticket holders.

He also raised eyebrows with an aggressive move to raise money for the nation's wealthiest athletic department.
