As soon as the Texas Longhorns suffered a two-game losing streak with embarrassing losses to the BYU Cougars and Ole Miss Rebels, the speculation began regarding the Longhorns’ next head coach. In the final week of the regular season, Longhorns’ head coach Mack Brown probably had a chance to save his job with a win over the Baylor Bears that would have given the Longhorns the Big 12 title and send them to a BCS game, but the Longhorns were easily dispatched by the Bears 30-10.
On Sunday, Brown officially announced his resignation after 16 years on the job.
Bovada has been kind enough to send over their odds for the next Longhorns’ head coach.
Current Louisville Cardinals’ coach Charlie Strong, who was formally a defensive coordinator with the Florida Gators and South Carolina Gamecocks and is known for his ability to recruit, is the favorite. Tight on his heels is current Baylor coach Art Briles, who led the Bears to an 11-1 record and a Big 12 Championship this season. Current Vanderbilt head coach James Franklins, who has led the Commodores to three bowls in three years, is next.
