Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown announced that he’d be stepping down from his position. That leaves the Longhorns looking for a new head coach for the first time in over a decade.

Brown released a statement through the school’s website:

“Sally and I were brought to Texas 16 years ago to pull together a football program that was divided. With a lot of passion, hard work and determination from the kids, coaches and staff, we did that. We built a strong football family, reached great heights and accomplished a lot, and for that, I thank everyone. It’s been a wonderful ride. Now, the program is again being pulled in different directions, and I think the time is right for a change.”

“I love The University of Texas, all of its supporters, the great fans and everyone that played and coached here. I can’t thank DeLoss Dodds enough for bringing our family here, and Bill Powers and the administration for supporting us at a place where I have made lifelong friendships. It is the best coaching job and the premier football program in America. I sincerely want it to get back to the top and that’s why I am stepping down after the bowl game. I hope with some new energy, we can get this thing rolling again.”

Longhorns fans have banned together to honor Brown with a billboard that simply reads “class act.”
