The Texas Longhorns are taking on the Oregon Ducks in the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. Earlier this week there were lots of reports that Mack Brown was going to be stepping down as the head coach of the Longhorns.
At the press conference on Thursday Brown finally addressed the rumors of the week on camera. Previously he had responded via text message.
“There’s been a little speculation about my job situation,” Brown said at the Alamo Bowl introductory news conference in San Antonio, via ESPN Dallas. “We’re not here to talk about me. My situation has not changed. I have the best president in the country in Bill Powers. He’s done a tremendous job. We’ve lost an iconic athletic director in DeLoss Dodds. He’s been my boss for 16 years. We hired what I think is a great athletic director in Steve Patterson.
“Any time the athletic director changes, it changes the game. I will sit down and talk to him and Bill and discuss the direction we’re going. I’m looking forward to my meeting with Bill and Steve and then move forward.”
