We have learned that Mack Brown will announce he is stepping down as the head coach of the Texas Longhorns. Sources say the Mack Brown made the decision to step down in an effort to prevent negativity within the Texas football program.
Apparently, Brown and Steve Patterson, Texas’ new athletic director met over this past weekend. There has been confirmation that UT president Bill Powers didn’t join them. Our sources state there should be a press conference within the next 48 hours.
The Longhorns season got off to a rough start, but the Longhorns fought back and even beat a tough Oklahoma Sooners team. Brown brought the Texas Longhorns to within one game of a Big 12 championship this season, losing to the championship game to Baylor this past Saturday. Texas is expected to offer a Brown a buyout of $2.75 million for the remainder of his contract, which is set to expire in 2020.
The Longhorns have a huge junior recruiting weekend starting Friday. It will be interesting to see how the attending players react to Brown’s reported departure.
The Texas football team is scheduled to play Oregon in the Valero Alamo Bowl on December 30. Brown has a 158-47 record at Texas, and led the team to a BCS National Championship in 2005.
