On Tuesday reports surfaced all over the sports world that Texas head football coach Mack Brown was poised to step down after 16 years on the job. While Brown later refuted that narrative Tuesday afternoon, several other reports and sources have popped up claiming he would resign by the end of the week. Brown reportedly wants to be the one to tell his players and staff and doesn’t want them to read about it on the Internet. The original report came from Orangebloods.com and Brown reacted harshly to it. Brown told the website Horns247.com the following about the Orangebloods report: I haven’t seen (the) article. I’m in Florida recruiting. If I had decided to step down, I sure wouldn’t be killing myself down here. I have not decided to step down. A source told ESPN’s Brett McMurphy that discussions have been ongoing between Brown, Texas president Bill Powers and Brown’s agent Joe Jamail. The talks are apparently amicable and they are just working out the particulars of his exit. Certain details must obviously be figured out first but the source was adamant that Brown will not be coaching at Texas next season. Again, several reports still suggest that Brown has not decided to step down, but we’ve been hearing that this move has been in the works for weeks, regardless of how the season finished. The 62-year-old Brown has been at Texas since the 1998 season and has posted a record of 158-47. He has won two Big 12 Championships (2005, 2009) and one BCS National Championship (2005). As would be expected, with news of Brown’s departure, rumors of Alabama coach Nick Saban’s move to Texas have already begun swirling. The post Report: Mack Brown to resign at Texas appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
