UT Regent Wallace Hall: President Bill Powers Won't Be at UT by Year's End

According to an email that has recently resurfaced, the University of Texas System Regent Wallace Hall reportedly "made the statement that Bill Powers wouldn't be here at the end of the year."

The email, as reported by the Houston Chronicle and the Texas Tribune was discovered regarding a story that Regent Wallace Hall met with Alabama football coach Nick Saban's agent to discuss possibly replacing UT head coach Mack Brown.

Click below the jump to see the email and what UT Regent Wallace Hall plans to do next.

As I reported last month, the UT Board of Regents are tasked with hiring and firing UT Presidents, including Bill Powers, and are currently only one vote shy from doing so on the nine-member board of regents.

The email can be found here but the incriminating recollection of Regent Steve Hicks can be seen below:

Regent Wallace Hall is being investigated by Texas House Select Committee on  Transparency in State Operations. He is accused of misusing his office as Regent to try to oust UT Austin President Bill Powers. The committee is investigating if Hall abused open records laws, and released confidential UT student and employee information while doing so.

Hall is expected to testify before the committee next week.
