Fenves reportedly meets with Patterson to discuss issues in athletic department

One month after UT President Gregory Fenves announced an internal review of Texas' athletic department, a high-ranking University source told the Austin American-Statesman on Tuesday that Athletic Director Steve Patterson is "in trouble."

The source told the Statesman the Fenves and Patterson met to "discuss various issues within the athletic department."

In early June, the Chronicle of Higher Education released a report detailing an incident where former Texas basketball player Martez Walker committed academic dishonesty by taking pictures of his test with his phone.

A week later, Fenves announced an independent review of the entire athletic department. Gene Marsh will oversee the review and release his findings in a public report.

In a conference call, Patterson said he "welcomed the review."

The Statesman reported that Fenves and Patterson have met twice and that a third meeting is "tentatively" scheduled for Friday.
