Chip Brown of Orange Bloods is reporting that Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown is stepping down after 16 seasons. It has been a tumultuous season for Mack Brown and the Texas Longhorns. They got off to a rough start and the rumors surrounding Brown’s job security started early in the season.

Then the Longhorns seemed to right the ship and had a chance to win the Big 12 Championship and a bid to a BCS Bowl with a win over Baylor in the season finale. They fell short, and fans wondered if Brown had done enough to save his job but Chip Brown is reporting that Mack Brown is stepping down.

Of course now Texas is denying these reports.

This tweet my best sum up the situation though, pointing out that this is the same thing they did with athletic director DeLoss Dodds before he stepped down.

[UPDATE:] Mack Brown is denying that he has decided to step down.

From ESPN Dallas:

“I haven’t seen [the] article,” Brown wrote in a text message to the website Horns247. “I’m in Florida recruiting. If I had decided to step down, I sure wouldn’t be killing myself down here. I have not decided to step down.”
