Before the college football season began, the future of Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown was under a tiny microscope. After a 1-2 start, including defensive embarrassments against Ole Miss and BYU, he was then put under a giant magnifying glass with the sun beating directly on him. Since then, the ‘Horns haven’t lost a game, are 7-2 and undefeated in the Big 12.
Now, at this point,, no one really knows what to think about the future of the long-time Texas head man.
However, according to Brown who appeared on the Tim Brando Show, preventing a high-profile head coaching job opening up in Austin this upcoming offseason is a simple process–just keep winning:

This is one of the more curious cases of a potential firing of a coach in recent memory. After that 1-2 start, Brown made a statement about being okay as long as they won the Big 12. Of course, the majority of us laughed, yet here we are in November and they still have yet to lose a game in the conference.
If Mack and his team do win out, it’ll be interesting to see the developments from there.
