West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck is the front-runner to be named athletic director at Texas and, pending an interview with an advisory committee, could have a contract completed within two weeks, according to a report from Rivals.com.
Luck has remained mum regarding the possibility of replacing longtime Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds and, once again had no comment Monday.
Luck, father of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, has numerous ties to Texas, where he earned a law degree in 1987. He spent five seasons with the Houston Oilers and presided over two championship seasons with the Houston Dynamo of MLS.
Two weeks ago, Luck was named to the 13-member College Football Playoff selection committee.
He was the No. 1 choice for the Texas opening from a group of names given by search firm Korn/Ferry International to the advisory committee, according to the report, which concludes that an official interview could come within the next week.
West Virginia will play host to Texas for a prime-time contest Nov. 9 in Morgantown, shortly before the Texas advisory committee is expected to make a decision.
