According to the Longhorn Network, Mack Brown’s tenure at Texas is over. Brown will step down as the Longhorns’ head coach, which opens arguably the No. 1 job in college football.
Brown went 158-47 in 16 years as Texas’ head coach, including a national championship over USC in 2005.
While the Longhorns won 158 games under Brown’s direction, the program slipped in recent years. Texas went 5-7 in 2010 and recorded a 25-13 mark over the next three years.
Texas is a high-profile job with a lot of booster responsibilities. Needless to say, the search to replace Brown will intriguing, especially since there is no easy replacement candidate.
