AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Arizona State athletic director Steve Patterson has accepted the athletic director's job at the University of Texas.

Arizona State President Michael M. Crow issued a statement Tuesday wishing Patterson well at Texas.

West Virginia's Oliver Luck had been widely reported as the favorite for the Texas position. Patterson emerged as the top candidate after interviewing with Texas' search advisory committee over the weekend.

Patterson will replace DeLoss Dodds, who is stepping down after 32 years at Texas. Patterson will take over the country's wealthiest college athletic department with an annual budget of nearly $170 million.

He also inherits questions over the job security of Longhorns football coach Mack Brown and basketball coach Rick Barnes.
