In a radio interview with Serius XM, former Texas HC Mack Brown did not rule out the possibility of coaching in the future.
Brown has been out of coaching since 2013, when he parted ways with Texas. He seems to have settled into a nice niche with ESPN, but told Serius XM, "There is no doubt that if the right situation came up, I would coach again. I have some good years left." He will turn 66 in August. For his career, Brown's coaching record is 244-122-1. His Texas teams posted a 30-21 record over his final four seasons at the helm of the ship. They won more than eight games just once in that space. Thu, Jun 1, 2017 04:13:00 PM

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman listed 14 names of potential candidates for Baylor's upcoming head coaching hire, including Mack Brown and Mike Singletary.

Current defensive coordinator Phil Bennett is expected to accept the interim head coach title in the near future, but Baylor could attempt to make another hire before (and certainly after) the season. In terms of Brown and Singletary, Feldman terms them the "Caretakers," as they could potentially help Baylor "wade through a turbulent time." Singletary played his college ball at Baylor.

Former Texas HC Mack Brown will lead the football feasibility study committee at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

Brown will lead the committee, but they'll be using consultants to determine whether the school can support a football program, meaning that the Valley's fate does not rest solely in the hands of Mack Brown. Said the former head coach of the Longhorns in a statement, "The opportunity to build a college football program from the ground up is unique, and I’m excited to be involved in the process. I know there are many passionate football fans in the Rio Grande Valley, and I can’t think of a better place to launch a college football program."

Former Texas HC Mack Brown said, "if somebody calls me, I'll talk to them," when asked if he had plans to coach again.

The 63-year-old indicated that he wouldn't be the one reaching out for offers, though, and that a team would have to come to him. "I’m very happy with what I’m doing," Brown said, referring to his current job with ESPN. "I talked to 10 coaches this spring and asked them their opinion of what happens when you get out of coaching. Some got back in. Some didn’t." Earlier this month, it was reported that SMU approached Brown about a head coaching possibility.

SMU contacted former Texas HC Mack Brown about its coaching vacancy.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, Brown told the school he is not interested in coaching at the moment. However, he reportedly added that he misses coaching, leaving the door open for future communication between the two sides. Brown’s attorney, Joe Jamail, said Brown has been approached with several job offers. "He was approached, I was approached, but he’s not interested in coaching anywhere right now," Jamail said. "He misses it, frankly, but he loves being on ESPN." Brown will reportedly make a decision about his future in December.

Mack Brown accepted a paid job as a special assistant to the Texas athletics department and will be paid $2.75 million over four years as part of a settlement.

"He resigned," Texas spokesman Nick Voinis said. "This is what was agreed to. We're honoring his contract." Brown is expected to spearhead fundraising efforts for UT and its athletics department, and will be compensated healthfully to do so. The school, however, saved a few pennies by parting with the veteran coach when it did, as Brown had been owed $40 million as part of an extension he signed last January that stretched through the 2020 season. Brown resigned in December after coaching the Longhorns for 16 years. Texas lured Charlie Strong from Louisville to replace him.

Mack Brown said at a Sunday press conference that he had the option to remain head coach at Texas and his decision to resign was a "mutual decision".

"It's time for me to move on and let someone else come in and restart the program," Brown said. "This is a top-five program annually. It may be the best job in the country. You should be in the mix every year." The news of his resignation, which had been rumored for most of the season, came to light on Saturday as the Longhorns practiced in preparation for the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30 against No. 10 Oregon. "I understand that if you don't win all the games here, people are unhappy," Brown said. "Other people love eight wins. This place isn't that way, and I agree with them." Texas has begun its search for a successor.

Texas coach Mack Brown said Thursday that he will not discuss his job status or campaign for his job.

"There's been a little speculation about my job situation," Brown said at a Valero Alamo Bowl news conference. "We're not here to talk about me. My situation has not changed. I have the best president in the country in Bill Powers. He's done a tremendous job. We've lost an iconic athletic director in DeLoss Dodds. He's been my boss for 16 years. We hired what I think is a great athletic director in Steve Patterson." Orangebloods reported Tuesday that Brown will resign after this season.

I have not decided to step down." Horns247 reported earlier in the day Tuesday that Texas' football staff has not been officially informed of a decision and Brown's future is expected to be decided within the next 48 hours.

Texas HC Mack Brown will step down after 16 years, according to Chip Brown of Orangebloods.

Brown cites "high-level sources," and the website is generally the best outlet for Texas football news. The report is not surprising, even though Mack Brown did help turnaround Texas' season. It will obviously be a highly coveted job, but Texas has lost some in state steam to Texas A&M. Vanderbilt's James Franklin might be the best available option, but there is little doubt that Texas will make a strong push for Nick Saban.
