IRVING Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles didn't need to be told that Texas lost to BYU on Saturday. The former standout Longhorn said he watched the game and has been teased about the 40-21 loss by Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, a former BYU player. "It kind of hurt," Charles said during a Wednesday conference call with reporters at the Dallas Cowboys practice facility. "It hurt watching the game and watching my former team. I know they prepare so much to go out there and play in an environment and to end up with those results, it's bad. "But I still believe in my Longhorns. Hopefully we can overcome that and just take it one game at a time now." Texas head coach Mack Brown led the Longhorns to a national title in 2005, Charles' freshman year. Brown also guided Texas to the national title game in 2009. But the last three seasons have each ended with less than 10 wins, including a 5-7 finish in 2010. The Longhorns have also lost their last three meetings with Oklahoma by a combined 146-58 score. If things get worse in Austin, a new head coach might be the only answer. So is Brown still the right head coach for the job? "Oh yeah," Charles responded. "I'm not going to say he's not. He won a national championship. I still believe in him. I think he gets the guys going. Coach Brown is just a great coach. I was there three years and under my three years we were able to go to a bowl game every year. "He gets on the players so hard, if they just start listening to everything he says and take it in, Coach Brown will lead that team. He's been to two national championships since he's been with the Longhorns. I mean, that's good. He won one and he lost one, but it's good." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
