Earlier today, it wasn't for sure. At the close of the day, he remains in his spot.
Once the panel returned to open session, UT Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa told the board of regents that Powers should keep his job, but that he needs to improve his relationship with the panel.
"There are problems," the Chancellor said. "I've addressed these problems. It is my expectation together President Powers and I will work on them in the future."
It was the climax of an emotional day for two of the Austin campus' best-known figures. As the closed-door session began, Powers spoke briefly to reporters and affirmed his support for Longhorns football coach Mack Brown.
It annoys me that he ends up having to discuss Mack Brown but it is what it is and we are who we are and you take what you do.
Congrats to Bill Powers and congrats to my sheepskin.
