The Texas Tribune invites you to join us for coffee and conversation with Steve Patterson, the newly appointed men's athletic director at the University of Texas at Austin.

Patterson previously served as athletic director at Arizona State University, and he succeeds DeLoss Dodds, who served as UT-Austin's men's athletics director from 1981 to 2013. Before his time with the Sun Devils, Patterson worked for more than two decades in professional sports as an executive with the Houston Texans, the Houston Rockets, the Portland Trail Blazers and the Houston Aeros. He also served as president of Pro Sports Consulting.
