Texas using 8-person search committee to find next football coach

That's so Texas. So, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so Texas. And this comes after athletic director Steve Patterson said last week that he'd be the in charge of the hire. While this doesn't rule out Patterson making the final call, it doesn't inspire any confidence in the process being orderly and leak-free. Also, it's supposed to last at least a few more weeks. Those panelists, by the way: Michael Clement (accounting professor), Steve Hicks (regent), Ricardo Hinojosa (federal judge), Charles Matthews (general counsel, Exxon Mobil), Robert Rowling (former regent), Robert Stillwell (regent), Charles Tate (chairman, Capital Royalty), and Pamela Willeford (former U.S. ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein).
