Following Chris Del Conte’s departure from TCU to take the athletic-director job at Texas, the former Horned Frog took out a full-page ad in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Tuesday thanking TCU fans.

Del Conte has led the TCU athletic department since 2009. Since then, he’s helped orchestrate multiple renovation projects and most notably get TCU into the Big 12 Conference.


Here is the full ad:

“For almost a decade, Robin, Sophia, Sienna and I have enjoyed working alongside all of you to accomplish great things in Fort Worth. While the time has come for us to embark on a new adventure and new challenge, we are forever grateful to so many wonderful people.

The leadership of Chancellor Boschini and the TCU Board of Trustees will ensure the momentum we started together will continue. TCU has already selected one of the brightest young leaders in college athletics and a driving force in the Horned Frogs’ success. Congratulations to Jeremiah Donati and his wife, Nicole.

The student-athletes are remarkable ladies and gentlemen who represent the purple and white with pride and integrity. The coaches and athletics support staff are among the finest in the country and know how to win the right way. The dedication and determination of alumni, students and fans is a palable and contagious. We will miss all of you deeply.

These words — no words — can ever truly express the gratitude I feel for all of you, so I will simply say:

Thank you!”

As Del Conte was introduced at Texas on Monday, TCU named Jeremiah Donati as its new athletic director the same day. He inherits TCU at a time while many of the school’s teams are thriving, especially in football, men’s basketball and baseball.
