Administrative History

The UT Athletics Media Relations Former Coaches Collection was created and maintained by the Media Relations office of The University of Texas at Austin’s Athletics Department. The office is located within the Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium complex, and reports to the Deputy Director of Athletics.

The Media Relations office serves as the principal media liaison for all sports at the University of Texas at Austin, including functioning as the main contact between outside entities inquiring for information (media, authors, researchers) and internal groups such as student-athletes, athletic directors, and coaches. According to the Media Relations’ website as of October 13, 2012, the Department’s purpose is to “actively publicize and promote the positive aspects of University intercollegiate athletics” and “provide information to the public and the media by creating and distributing media guides, news releases and photos, responding to media requests, and arranging for media interviews with coaches and athletes.” The functions of the Department include: collecting newspaper and magazine articles, preserving internal and external correspondence of athletics’ staff, and preparing information packages for media. In addition, the National Collegiate Athletic Association requires universities to keep files and statistics related to each game, and Media Relations acts as the source for this data.

UT Austin sports teams compete at the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division I level. The first documented athletics group at UT was the student-run Athletics Association Club – which hired the university’s first football coach, R.D. Wentworth, in 1893. In 1914, the university’s sports teams began competing in the newly formed regional Southwest Conference. They remained a part of the Southwest Conference until 1996, when they joined the Big 12, in which they still compete today.

The UT Athletics Department changed significantly during the Civil Rights era. Although the United States Supreme Court ordered the desegregation of schools in 1950, UT Athletics lagged behind in desegregation. African American students were admitted to the university, but continued to endure segregation and complete exclusion from sports programs. Students’ opinions began to change, however, during the 1960s. In 1961, the student assembly voted 22 to 2 urging the Board of Regents to allow African American students to participate in student activities, including athletics. The Board turned down this proposal, and the change in policy wasn’t enacted until 1963. The first African American athletes competed in track the following year, and the first football player in 1970, yet problems with integration continued long after this time.

UT Athletics was also significantly affected by the passage of Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972. Title IX banned discrimination on the basis of gender for those schools seeking federal funds. After passage of Title IX, UT Athletics elevated its women’s sports teams to varsity status and hired its first Women’s Athletics Director, Donna Lopiano. With her support, the share of university funds for women’s athletics increased substantially. Lopiano also hired the first female women's basketball coach, Jody Conradt, who went on to become Women’s Athletics Director after Lopiano. Following a Title IX lawsuit in 1993, soccer, rowing, and softball teams were added to the Women’s Athletics Department.

As of November 2012, The University of Texas at Austin fields NCAA Division 1 teams for the following sports:

Scope and Content

5 Boxes, 413 Folders (no date 1931-2011).

The collection consists of 413 files pertaining to Athletic Department personnel and various faculty and other individuals associated with the Athletic Department. These materials were collected to retain statistics and data on athletes, coaches, and other staff in order to provide information for Media Relations writers and to any media outlet that may request it.

The collection has files on persons of note such as head football coach Fred Akers, athletic director DeLoss Dodds, women’s basketball coach Gail Goestenkors, track and field coach Stan Huntsman, track and field coach Beverly Kearney, women’s athletic director Donna Lopiano, football coach John Mackovic, basketball coach Tom Penders, and basketball coach Bob Weltlich. Also included are files on baseball coach Cliff Gustafson and assistant coach Deron Gustafson, who were involved in a financial scandal and lawsuit in 1996.

The records document a wide range of sporting activities from approximately 1931 through 2011. The bulk dates are predominantly from the 1960s to 2000s, when racial integration of college sports and the women’s sports movement became headline issues. Specific types of documents contained within the collection include press clippings, job applications, résumés, magazines, photographs, correspondence, and statistical records, amongst others.

UT Athletics Media Relations Department will continue to add to this collection in both paper and digital formats.
