Mack Brown met with University of Texas president Bill Powers and athletic director Steve Patterson on Friday afternoon to discuss his future with the team, according to Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News.

While the outcome of the meeting is not known, Patterson did say in his speech at Friday night’s Longhorns football banquet that he hopes that he and Brown can “work together for many years to come”, according to SBNations Wescott Eberts.  Neither he nor Brown indicated whether Brown would remain the head coach next season in their speeches.

ESPN‘s Brett McMurphy is reporting that Brown had originally intended to step down at the end of the season.

However, Brown was “enraged” when the news leaked to the media, and he decided to change course, according to the source.

Awesome. Our wily beer-bellied con man pulled a reverse rope-a-dope on the entire Longhorn Nation last night, letting Patterson and all of us peons know who's boss.   You Go, Macker.  The clapping moron can't even pull off his bogus inflated "10-Win Season!" scam anymore, but he's decided to continue stealing millions from the university for doing virtually nothing.  And why should he leave? 8-5 is perfectly fine with him, and the unearned dough keeps Miss Sally in furs and 24k gold toilets in the Brown Mansion.  The fans?  Screw 'em!.  Our blubbery coach is selfish and egotistical enough to make this all about Mack Brown, so bow down.  He's about to follow through with his threat to stay until 2020.  His aim is to pass DKR  in victories, which would blasphemous.  Coach Royal won 10 conference titles, while CEO Brown has puffed up his totals with lots of sham wins over inferior competition, and a grand total of 2 conference titles in 30 years as a head coach (and it only took VY and Colt for Mack to get those).    Let's give him his due.  The man is a genius.  Who else could absolutely blow at their job, and have Brinks' truck pull into their Estate's diamond-studded driveway each week?  Mack Brown… "The Bernie Madoff Of College Football!"

I, for one, can not wait for this story to go away.  Why is it getting so much national attention?

Maybe Saban's old wife can get a face lift now with the raise Nick got from Bama and she can maybe start to look female again?

Too bad Mack Brown cannot realize he is weak and not a good coach anymore.  No the old buzzard wants to bleed Texas dry and ruin the program ala what Joe Paterno did at Penn State. Just quit mack.

Oliver Luck from West Virginia turned Texas down to be the New Athletic Director because he did not want to be the one who "Fired" Mack Brown. 

So, Texas turned to Steve the "Snake" Patterson who said that he did Not mind "Firing" Mack Brown. 

When Steve Patterson & his Father ran the Houston Rockets they were "Snakes"

Everyone in Houston "Hated" the Patterson Family. I was a Season Ticket holder who had to live through the "Worst" Years of Management of a Professional Team that could be assembled. 


Thank God, they were Run out of Town! - I had hoped they had all left the Country forever! 

"The Snake" - Steve Patterson got hired to "Fire" Mack Brown and got the Job!

As usual, Steve pulled the "Old Patterson Trick" - Get the Job & then Let Mack Brown "Smooze" him!


Mack Brown is a "Disgrace" to the Orange & White! He has run this Football Program into the ground!

Mack Brown missed out on Andrew Luck, RGIII & Manziel who ALL wanted to play Football at Texas.

Mack Brown wanted David Ash & the Younger McCoy at Quarterback - Enough, said?

Mack Brown is a "World Class Smoozer" who cannot Coach his way out of a "Wet Paper Sack"


I have supported the Texas Longhorns since the 1960's. I now am "Done" with Longhorns! 


No wonder they Cannot recruit any Houston Area Football Players! 


Texas A&M is Kicking the Butts in Recruiting here. 

Hell, Oklahoma & Oklahoma State recruit better in the Houston Area than the Texas Longhorns! 


Mack Brown is a "Fool" - Kids across the State of Texas hate the Texas Longhorns because of Brown! 

Sumlin at Texas A&M is Out Recruiting "Old" Brown everyday! 

Briles at Baylor is "Kicking his Butt", too!

As Dandy Don Meredith use to Sing: "Turn Out the Lights, the Party is Over" at Texas.


Great Job, TEXAS LONGHORNS! - Patterson & Brown = Bad Decision! 


You could have had Oliver Luck at A.D. & Saban as Coach. = That's Right!


Saban's wife was House hunting in Austin last month until Texas hired Steve Patterson! 


I guess 8 Wins & 4 Losses suits Texas. - It used to take 10 Wins to keep your job! 


Oregon will "Stomp" a hole in the Longhorns = 8 Wins & 5 Losses!

I love the spin that sportswriters are now putting on this.  "Well he was going to resign, but when we reported it he got mad and changed his mind."  Come on, was that really the best they could come up with to cover their hides?    Are they forgetting that they were also reporting that it was more or less going to be a forced resignation?  When that question is asked are they going to say that it enraged the AD and he changed his mind too?

Maybe Washington and Texas can work a swap. Shanahan for Brown. I'd REALLY like to see that story.

@boatmanbob7 They are con artists, at least Miss Sally is, and it's been reported in the past that she considers herself a "full partner" and attends these meetings with him, so she was probably there in the room and together they did their thing on them. It is pathetic but they won't be able to keep doing this, the pressure to replace him will continue to grow.

@boatmanbob7Mack is not the problem.  It's idiot "fans" like yourself who are so clueless it's a wonder you're able to even walk around.

@Sports#1Geez.  And here I thought "boatmanbob7" was an idiot.  My apologies to him.  You have taken the cake.  Of all the dipsh*ts that patrol the comment sections of various news/sports outlets, none have spewed more crap in a single post than you here.  Congratulations!!!

@Sports#1  On bright side Mrs saban feels more "appreciated" now. Sabans are  receiving bout $7M a yr  from their new Alabama deal, "coincidentally" same $7M mentioned in first Texas job stories leaked by Sabans agent  following last yrs bowl games .Sorry longhorns, no hard feelings  just business. Sabans played this one like a fiddle.
