ESPN reported yesterday via the Longhorn Network, that University of Texas head coach Mack Brown will resign after the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30th.
In this statement, Brown mentions the Longhorns’ outgoing Athletic Director, but not the new incoming one, which suggests a staff change might be the reason for Brown’s resignation.
“I love The University of Texas, all of its supporters, the great fans and everyone that played and coached here, I can’t thank [former athletics director] DeLoss Dodds enough for bringing our family here, and [UT president] 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.”
No word on where Brown will head next.
