Many people have called for Longhorns head coach Mack Brown' job over the past few years. After Colt McCoy went down in the National Championship game in 2010, the program hasn't been the same. Heading into this season, Brown has ranked at the top of many lists of coaches in the hot seat. But Mack Brown will not be fired. Why the confidence, because the man said it in an interview with Yahoo! Sports. "'I'm not going to be fired,' he said flatly," wrote Yahoo! expert Pat Forde. In fact, Brown went on to talk about his future, a much longer time than many fans in Austin were hoping. "I want to finish at Texas," Brown continued. "If Im healthy and we win, Im going to try to make 2020 when his current contract expires. I think it would be fun to do that, get back on another roll. "Were coaching because we like it. Were coaching because were having fun. We dont need the money." And what about the mindset of leaving while your on the top of your game? Brown doesn't buy into it. Brown revealed, "People have said, What about your legacy?' Who cares about your legacy? Youre dead when you have one." Well, it's good that Brown doesn't care about his legacy, because it certainly took a hit the past few seasons. Though maybe the Longhorn community wished he cared just a little bit more. In college football, winning is everything. OK in football, winning is everything.
