Texas athletic director Steve Patterson has appointed an eight-person advisory search committee to replace Mack Brown, the school announced Wednesday.

The school also has retained the executive recruiting firm Korn/Ferry for the search to hire a new head football coach.

FORBES: Texas ranked most valuable college football program

The eight search committee members, according to UT — per the Austin American Statesman – are:

  • Steve Hicks, vice chair of the Board of Regents, one of the board’s athletics liaisons, and owner and executive chairman of Capstar Partners LLC, a private investment firm.
  • Robert Stillwell, member of the Board of Regents, one of the board’s athletics liaisons, retired partner at Baker Botts LLP and an original director of Mesa Petroleum Co.
  • Michael Clement, accounting professor, McCombs School of Business at UT Austin, and faculty representative to the Men’s and Women’s Athletics Councils.
  • Ricardo Hinojosa, United States federal judge for the Southern District of Texas, former member of the university’s Commission of 125.
  • Charles Matthews, former vice president and general counsel of Exxon Mobil, current president of the Texas Exes.
  • Robert Rowling, former member of the Board of Regents and owner and chairman of TRT Holdings Inc.
  • Charles Tate, chairman of Capital Royalty, former member of the executive committee of the university’s Commission of 125.
  • Pamela Willeford, former U.S. ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein and former chair of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Give Muschamp the right salary and he'll jump Florida in a minute.


I'll bet the Gator alums will chip in if Texas needs more money.

Sounds more like a Board of Directors searching for a CEO, not a football coach.
