Updated, 2:30 p.m.: No outside pressure, internal unhappiness or specific event led University of Texas at Arlington President James Spaniolo to his decision to announce his retirement, he told the Tribune on Monday.
"There's no sense of dissatisfaction or ambition or anything like that that prompted me to make this decision," he said. "I'm not being recruited. I'm not anticipating any specific opportunity. I'm not looking to be a university president someplace else."
