University of Texas men’s athletic director Steve Patterson expects to have a new football coach in place before the end of the NCAA dead period on Jan. 15.

“We’ve got to be back open for business in the middle of the month once the dead period ends, so we need to get it done before then,” Patterson said. “The coach has to put together a staff and be up and running, making sure we keep the recruits we got in the spots we’ve got.”

Patterson made his first public comments on the football coaching search before the Alamo Bowl on Monday, the final game of Mack Brown’s 16-year run at Texas. Brown announced Dec. 14 that he would be stepping down as UT’s coach.

Patterson said several coaches have expressed interest in the job, but would not get into specifics as to who is being considered or how the process is playing out.

Asked if they are going through a formal application process, Patterson joked by saying: “The guys we’re talking to are not filling out applications.”

Patterson went on to say that UT would honor the oral commitments of the 2014 recruits who committed under Brown. Patterson added that UT is “not out to set a new threshold” in terms of the coach’s salary.
