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. Feb 13 - 4:44 PM

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.

Bobby Burton of 247 sports reports Mack Brown will remain coach at Texas.

Brown and new athletic director Steve Patterson reportedly met at length on Friday, and some stated the head coach was "fighting for his job." ESPN cited a source that said Brown was enraged when news leaked that he would resign, leading to a change of heart on the decision. Brown later said ESPN had the story wrong.

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.

Texas coach Mack Brown will resign by the end of the week, reports ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Orangebloods.com reported Tuesday afternoon that Brown would step aside after 16 years as Texas coach. Brown, on the recruiting trail in Florida, rebuked the report a few hours later. "I know Mack, he's friend, this is his decision, but he wants to tell his players and staff and not read it on the internet," an ESPN source said. "That's why he reacted strongly to the (Orangebloods.com) report." Brown, Texas president Bill Powers and Brown's agent, Joe Jamail have reportedly been speaking. "The talks were very friendly and the conclusion was Mack would step down in the next couple of days," the source said. Nick Saban will reportedly take over the Longhorns program after Brown vacates his seat.

Texas HC Mack Brown has not resigned as Longhorns head coach.

Yet. Brown responded to Chip Brown's report at Orangebloods, telling 247Sports.com: "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." 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. There is some buzz surrounding Nick Saban possibly replacing Brown, but it seems very unlikely at this point.

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.

Texas coach Mack Brown has a minimal $2.75 million buyout if he is let go before Dec. 31, 2014.

Brown agreed to the buyout when he accepted an extension through the 2020 season last January. It's considered extremely low against industry standard, especially because Brown is owed about $40 million after this season. The Longhorns fell to 8-4 after Saturday's blowout loss against Baylor.

SI.com is reporting that Mack Brown's status as head coach is unknown entering Saturday's game against Baylor.

"It's up in the air," a high-ranking Texas official told Pete Thamel. "My thought is he'll probably do the right thing for himself and Texas and step down. But coaches have something in their DNA that don't normally let them do that. How many times have you seen it? With [Joe] Paterno or [Bobby] Bowden? People forget Darrell Royal was 5-5-1 in his last season." The source said that the result of Saturday's game against Baylor has no bearing on Brown's status, win or lose. "I personally hope he decides to retire and go out on a good note," the source said.
