As a student, I can't find other students that care about this. I have talked to students who barely know when home games are. Someone once asked me how I knew when games were- and I honestly didn't even know what to tell her, because if I didn't put them in my calendar when the schedule came out, I probably wouldn't know either. I've been to visiting games (CU, UTSA) and actually had fun, despite being the losing visiting team. Other's game day atmospheres are light years ahead of ours. Larry Teis has made no effort to engage with students or student athletics

His performance did not meet my expectations and I had lost faith in him as our coach. That said I have even less faith in Dr. Teis making the right choice for his successor.

I have attended many alumni executive lunches, bobcat bonzanas, cat caravans, presidential invitations for basketball, Alumni events with the coaches, other fundraising events. Every time Larry Teis has been present, has has never engaged in a conversation or Acknowledged my presence. Teis is a horrible people person and not fit for his role.

I’m a former student athlete. Current member of alum association, T-association, Bobcat club as well as numerous sport booster clubs(volleyball, WBB, MBB, softball, golf etc). I have season tickets and attend every home athletic event...I am known. Last year, I traveled with other boosters to Wyoming for football and met Bobcat club at pregame meal. Teis got off the bus, saw 5 of us in maroon, and walked the other way without so much as a wave in our direction. I don’t expect a parade or hugs every time I see him, but I expect a hello or thank you for supporting our teams. Teis was also made aware that a head coach was sleeping with an associate AD about 10 years ago and did nothing. He was not in the gym for the WBB Championship game last year.

I’ve worked in the department and can confirm the incompetencies, the lack of vision, the complacency. When I’ve asked questions as to why things are done so backwards, the response is often a sarcastic, “why are you using logic?” or “that’s the way it’s been done.” Ideas are often shot down upon presentation and that’s the culture there.

Jury is still out on Everett. Didn’t seem to be doing much from play calling and game management to warrant keeping job. But Teis is #1 the one to go
Besides facilities and “not getting in trouble with NCAA” Teis has done much. Game experience is non exsistant. The overall feel seem very jr high level. The camera crew and ppl running score boards are horrible. Feels like no one really cares. I LOVE my almamater. And unfortunately the big time sports in our day cast a big name for any school. But when you think of TXST you think mediocrity. You see a lot of I don’t care, as long as we aren’t in trouble.

Withers was not making sufficient progress. But the timing was clearly a knee jerk reaction.
The university is missing out in reality in probably close to 500k/year in revenue (donations, ticket sales, merchandise sales, etc) by retaining him. He is not the right man for the job.

I have a bunch of LT stories, but here's one example. Was standing with my wife in Lakefront Arena in New Orleans before MBB SBC championship game. There was only a handful of fans and parents who made the trip. I approached Dr Teis. He was polite but within seconds made it totally clear he uninterested in talking to me. All I really had to say was that I appreciated him getting Kaspar to San Marcos and that I enjoyed his style of coaching. LT is an asshole to the MBB biggest supporters.

Based on personal experience working directly in and around ATH for multiple years, personal accounts from several employees within ATH...most of them are no longer employed due to the climate and substandard compensation of employees stemming from the AD, and the overall performance of the revenue-based sports.

I'm an alum and long-time donor and season ticket holder (10 years). I've had season tickets for football (10 seasons), men's basketball (7 seasons), and baseball (6 seasons) through the years but currently have only kept my tickets for football. My discontent with Dr. Teis likely isn't as strong as the majority of disgruntled supporters of the athletic programs of Texas State. First, I'd like to commend Dr. Teis on many things he's been a part of throughout his years at Texas State University. As the university itself has seen unprecedented growth during his tenure, Dr. Teis has had the task of expanding the athletics dept. to match that growth. I have no doubt there have been many challenges during that timeframe Dr. Teis has had to endure. Our football program has moved into the FBS, we've seen multiple changes in conference alignment, and we've built some high quality facilities that alums like myself can take pride in. We have seen success on the field/court during Dr. Teis's tenure as well. Perhaps not near enough across the board and certainly not in the revenue sports, but Texas State has become a competitive and well rounded member of the Sun Belt Conference in the non-revenue sports over the course of the past 5 years and I look forward to seeing that continue and be improved upon. Furthermore, our athletics programs have continuously made alums proud of the achievements of our athletes in the classroom and outside the field of play. In a climate where scandals have become all too common across the country in the athletic departments at D1 universities, Texas State has maintained a reputable image among its peer institutions. For these things listed above, I commend Dr. Teis on his efforts.

Unfortunately, I feel the responsibilities of the position of Director of Athletics at TXST has grown to the level it requires someone with a higher skill set across a variety of disciplines that Dr. Teis doesn't seem to possess. As the university has grown, so has the fanbase and the expectations those fans place on athletics. Engagement with alumni, students, fans, and the community is sorely lacking. We see little to no aggressive tactics to grow the fanbase, or even maintain what current fanbase there is. Despite receiving free admission to athletic events, students frequently are unaware when or where important games/matches are taking place. When compared with peer institutions our gameday environment lacks the atmosphere of big time D1 college athletics. Large crowds are unfortunately not the norm and when we do see large crowds there are often logistical nightmares associated. Last year's tailgate for the UTSA game is a prime example of the dept. not identifying potential issues with a crowd significantly larger than usual. Once inside our venues there is little to entertain the crowd other than the game itself, what entertainment and promotions you do see are the same things every game that have often been done for years at a time.

Texas State has been FBS for over 6 years now and our media presence hasn't matched the growth of our university during that time. Despite being positioned near two large media markets, and despite one of those markets not having another D1 football program for years prior to UTSA's startup, we have been unable to get coverage for our teams. Reporters from media outlets in Austin and San Antonio have commented on the perceived lack of willingness of the athletics dept. to communicate with them. Dr. Teis himself rarely makes appearances in the media that could help connect the fanbase to the department. The few appearances that are conducted rarely give an image of organization or professionalism.

Head Coaching hires have routinely fallen short of expectation for almost every sport aside from some good hires in Track & Field. Withers is now added to the list of failed football hires with Franchione and Wright. Doug Davalos was ill-qualified for a D1 position when hired and his results reflected that. Even when it became apparent a change was needed, the decision was made to let Davalos complete the final year of his contract during a crucial season as we transitioned from the Southland to the WAC. A quick look into our successful programs shows a list of coaches that were in place prior to Dr. Teis's appointment as director of athletics (Chisum, Woodard, Conner, Harrington).

Ex-athletes have commented on Teis's lack of direct contact/communication with their respective teams. Troubling rumors have surfaced regarding Teis's meeting with the players following the (what I believe to be) premature dismissal of Coach Withers. As a donor and frequent spectator at home and away events I've been to several alumni tailgates for away football games, spent countless halftimes during basketball games in reception rooms, and have been to literally hundreds of baseball games. I've had little to no direct contact with Dr. Teis in any of those settings. There doesn't appear to be any networking done even with current donors to make us feel part of the program. I don't see any proactive approach to gain new donors, increase donations among current donors, or retain disgruntled donors who plan to pull their support due to their frustration with Dr. Teis's perceived performance. As a donor who has such little contact with anybody within the department I feel fairly confident that there is little to no outreach being done with alumni, students, fans, community etc. to help build donor levels at all.

I see little to no marketing being done to be proactive about increasing attendance. Specific to football we've seen a huge decline in attendance through this rough stretch. While I understand continued losing has a huge impact on attendance, there is no sign of any proactive approach by the athletics department to combat it. We need an athletics director with some fire and passion to get people in the stands and understand that it takes more than nice facilities and a winning team for a program to reach its full potential. I also see no proactive approach or plan in place to set Texas State up for future success. Twice we've been left out of a bowl game while we had eligibility. What are we doing to prevent that from occurring a third time? Realignment will certainly happen again at some point in the future. What are we doing to set ourselves up to be as attractive as possible when that inevitably occurs again? What are we doing to ensure a positive future for Texas State athletics?

As I began with, I thank Dr. Larry Teis for all of the hard work I'm sure he's put in during his tenure with this university. I have no doubt he's being honest when he says he loves this university and I have no doubt he's doing his best. However, I feel it's time for a change in leadership within the athletics department. While I'm confident Dr. Teis can be a good athletic director in another environment I feel he is no longer the best option specifically for Texas State University. The hiring of a quality athletic director who can maintain the positives Dr. Teis has laid the foundation for while improving the areas above we are struggling with through relentless pursuit of excellence and focused vision could make athletics at Texas State relevant at a national level and make its alumni base and students proud Bobcats.

Withers was on his way to bringing football back. Rebuilding is just that, rebuilding. With the youth on the roster there was continued improvement and the trajectory was promising. No reason to fire him at this time taking into consideration the overall circumstances. Completely ridiculous and I feel for all athletics under this awful Trauth/Teis administration.

Makes no sense to fire Whiters with so much fire on the AD. If new AD is on the horizon, he/she will want to hire “their” coach.

The problem with Dr. Teiss is his inability to interact socially with the alumni/fan base. You don't always rember what people say but you always remember how they made you feel.

He needed to be fired but in conjunction with the firing of Teis. This entire situation has been mishandled and is an indictment on the leadership of the university.

I’d take the call about donating when Teis is gone. I will not consider a donation while he is there
Very unfortunately, I don’t bring the family to games. I want them to be as proud of the program as I was. Driving all the way to San Marcos to get in a bad mood for a loss doesn’t make sense. Nor does it make sense to invest time/money to watch us play no-name programs to get a cheap win.

When confronted with opposition to his hiring buddy Fran, Teis went low. Rather than engaging in conversation and defending his position, he resorted to researching my friends contributions to the University. That was his defense. I think the wording he used in his email (likely hiding in his office as is typical) was, “It’s people like you who make my job tough. I see that you’ve donated $xxx since 19xx....”
I know people who donate plenty and the guy can’t remember their name after sitting at the same table with them a week prior.

No opinion.
I had a negative interaction with Lawrence quite some time ago. This was before the hiring of “Fran”. I expressed my concern over his (Larry’s) consideration for Fran. Lawrence dug in my alumni donor records to look at my past donations and stated based on my past donations, I didn’t really have a voice. I went on to express my shock and displeasure to the President who sent me a canned response and that she would address it. That had to have been close to 5 years ago. Things seem to have gotten worse but it made it easy to figure out where I would get my Masters degree. Although TXST was closer, I attended the University of Texas. I have never regretted that decision and Lawrence played a part in my decision to never to go back to TXST while he was still there. UT got about $45K for my Masters program and Lawrence is welcome to go research that - McCombs School of business MSTC class of 2014 if you want to search me again Larry. Between my interaction with Lawrence years ago and this message, it isn’t too hard to put a name to this message. Goodbye Texas State and what a kinda sad ending but I am happily a Longhorn now, a lifetime member of the Texas Exes thanks in large part to Larry. I guess I owe a thank you and Hook Em for that Larry. I took my money elsewhere and have no regrets and will encourage my four children to attend the University of Texas as well. I may be an anomaly and I hope that is the case but fear Lawrence has done a lot of damage unseen.

I understand the move, but I would have also been okay with keeping him on a short leash next season. A full rebuild is just that and takes some time. I also think this is an opportunity to completely revitalize the Bobcat faithful. A new AD right now would prompt me to begin to be a regular donor again. As it stands, I can't help fund such ineptitude.
Larry is an FCS AD. He will always be an FCS AD. He is terrible at everything a good AD should be great at--fan engagement, availability to the press, vocal supporter on social media, showing appreciation to donors, not to mention running auctions properly (still bitter about not getting my items) among many other things. I was a Football season ticket holder for approximately 8 years, I've donated hundreds of dollars to the Bobcat Club and the Liberal Arts School when they call me. I also held basketball season tickets (both Mens and Women's) to show support with the Kaspar hire. Participated in numerous auctions and spent over $400 there. I've never had a conversation/met Larry.

Lawrence B. Teis is a cancer within the Texas State Athletics Department. His poor leadership has trickled down to those directly beneath him, damaging the image of TXST Athletics and the entry to mid-level employees who bust their asses to save what semblance of dignity this department still has. His presence is a hinderance to student-athletes, fans, faculty, alumni and current students and his removal is necessary to ensure any future success of Texas State Athletics.
