University of Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds will reportedly retire from the position he has held for over three decades.

The American-Statesman's Kirk Bohls and Ralph K.M. Haurwitz have the news:

Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds will announce Tuesday afternoon that he will step down next August after 32 years in the position, three well-connected sources told the American-Statesman on Monday.

"He's going to announce it tomorrow," one of the well-placed sources said. "They were going to do it today but decided to wait because they didn't want to detract from the passing of (legendary former Longhorn quarterback) James Street."
