Ask a Question

Updated July 30th, 2014

The Brownsville Herald has reported that all of UT-Brownsville's athletics programs will be dissolved and that the UTRGV new athletic program will be based exclusively in Edinburg.  First question: is this accurate?  Second question: If true, why isn't the athletic program being spread across both campuses? i.e. Basketball in Edinburg; Volleyball in Brownsville; Soccer in Edinburg; Cross Country in Brownsville; etc.

UT System leadership determined that UTRGV will have a NCAA Division I athletics program.  Because of UTPA’s existing participation in NCAA Division I athletics, the UTPA athletics program will be converted into the athletics program at UTRGV.  UTB competes in NAIA which is why none of its programs will be converted to UTRGV.  No decisions have been made regarding the locations of the athletics programs.  The UTRGV Athletics Committee will make recommendations regarding this issue and others to the Chancellor of the UT System, Executive Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs of the UT System and President of UTRGV.
