Fertitta confirms with Mark Berman that he’s willing to put up the $20 million, but is willing to step aside if someone decides to match or put up more and donate money wherever is most needed:

Tilman Fertitta is ready to help University of Houston athletics

“Nothing is signed today,” Fertitta told FOX 26. “If that’s where I need to step up to help the University of Houston, that’s where I’m going to be. Hopefully, we can find someone else who wants to do that and I can do something else.

“We have a great football field. We have a great baseball field. We need a new basketball arena. While I could contribute to the School of Business or the Hotel-Restaurant Management School, if where my gift needs to be is athletics, then that’s where it will be.

“If I need to step up and fill a void for the University of Houston, I’m going to do it.”

In Berman’s piece, Tilman apparently told the Hofheinz family and their lawyer about his plans.

I’m sure that’s who leaked the info to Benny the Werm.
