HOUSTON (AP) - Services are Monday in Austin for Deron
Gustafson -- the son of former Texas baseball coach Cliff Gustafson.
Deron Gustafson died yesterday at a Houston hospital. He was 46.
Deron Gustafson had suffered from liver disease in recent years.
His father told the Austin American-Statesman that his son had
hoped to get a liver transplant.
Deron Gustafson played second base for the Longhorns from
He batted .306 in 1983 and helped UT, with a team that included
pro baseball great Roger Clemens, win the College World Series.
Gustafson worked as a recruiter for his father for 13 years
after his playing days.
Cliff Gustafson resigned in 1996 and at the time was the
winningest coach in Division I history.
-- In 1999, Gliff Gustafson sued UT athletics director DeLoss
Dodds, accusing Dodds of engineering the coach's resignation.
University officials said an audit of Gustafson's affairs
included an outside bank account, set up by him and his son, that
held nearly $285,000 from summer baseball camp revenue.
Gustafson said then he was unaware of regulations preventing him
from setting up his own account for camp revenues.
A judge later dismissed the lawsuit.
