Big 12 losing a strong leader in Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds

Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds, who announced Tuesday that he will retire after this academic year, oversaw the creation of The Longhorn Network, which factored into the departure of Missouri and other schools from the Big 12. But Dodds, a Kansas native and former coach and A.D. at Kansas State, also decided to keep Texas in the Big 12 when a move to the Pac-12 could have dissolved the conference and left KU and K-State in the cold.
