Sources: Mack Brown likely to step down as UT head football coach

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) (CBS SPORTS) - According to, and several other sources, University of Texas Head football coach Mack Brown is to step down within the next 48 hours.

CBS Sports also quotes reporter Bobby Burton, who reported Tuesday that Mack Brown's future as Texas coach would likely be decided within the next two days.

"I think there will be a decision (about Brown's job) within the next 48 hours," a "high-ranking Texas source" told Burton.

Multiple outlets, including the Dallas Morning News, have reported that Brown met with new Texas athletic director Steve Patterson at length Sunday during their flight to New York. The News described the meeting as "positive and productive," and sources indicated Brown was not asked to resign.

But nothing seems guaranteed for Brown just yet, not after another 8-4 season that ended with 20-or-more point losses in two of the Longhorns' final three games, including a 30-10 loss at former punching bag Baylor with the Big 12 championship on the line. Brown has gone just 18-17 in the Big 12 over the past four seasons.
