The Texas Longhorns missed out on BCS Bowl bid when they lost to the Baylor Bears in the season finale. That has the Longhorns going to the Valero Alamo Bowl in nearby San Antonio.
Longhorns head coach Mack Brown has had a tumultuous week with rumors swirling around that he is going to resign this week. There were reports that he would, then there reports that he wouldn’t then again there were reports that he would, all of which came in one day.
Brown’s lawyer and Texas donor Joe Jamail has denied that Brown had resigned.
“He’ll make that decision when the time comes, when he thinks it’s best for the university,” Jamail told Beaumont’s KBMT-TV (Ch. 12). “He’s not going to be rushed into it by these screaming idiots that get on the Internet and they’re anonymous, not even brave enough to name themselves.”
Who knows what will happen at Mack Brown’s press conference but you can bet that it’ll be an interesting one to watch. Brown might not voluntarily address the reports that he is resigning but he will likely be asked about it and it’d be the first time we got a direct quote from him about the subject.
Previously we got a response from Brown in a text message to the website Horns247.
“I haven’t seen [the] article,” Brown wrote. “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.”
