While acknowledging failures in his own leadership, that have contributed to recent budget problems and layoffs, the President of the University of Texas affiliated institution said it was time to let others take over management. Chancellor McRaven of the the UT-System has asked Dr DePinho to stay on through the end of the current legislative session which will end in May.
