It looks like the Texas Longhorns will be searching for a new head coach this offseason, as MAck Brown is expected to step-down in the coming days after a hall of fame-worthy career at UT and at North Carolina:
High-level sources tell http://t.co/Pb827xg41z Mack Brown will step down as coach at Texas after 16 years.

And citing what he calls a “high-ranking source,”Bobby Burton of 247Sports.com is reporting that the “decision on Mack Brown’s future [is] expected in [the] next ’48 hours.’” If this is indeed the end of Brown’s tenure at UT and as a college head coach, it’s certainly been one full of mostly highs, but too many lows over the past four seasons.
Brown led Texas to the 2005 national championship, the last season in which a team from outside the SEC won the BCS title. Brown also led the Longhorns to the 2009 championship game, which it lost to the Alabama Crimson Tide, but has gone just 30-20 since then.
