Looks like Arizona State fans will need to worry about Todd Graham leaving for Austin this year after all. Mack Brown era has ended in Texas:
Mack Brown addressed the media Sunday afternoon to discuss his decision to step down as head coach of Texas, saying the decision was his and made for the good of the university.
"We've had a great 16 years," Brown said. "Sally said yesterday, 'four presidential terms.' So that's a long time. We have had a blast."
Brown spoke at length about what he felt was his main goal at Texas -- to pull together what he called a "divided fan base."
"I think if you asked me what I wanted to be remembered for, it would be pretty simple," he said. "I want to be remembered for bringing some joy to Texas and raising the standard."
It will be interesting to see who the Longhorns hire to replace Brown. For us -- if Texas replaces Brown with a top-flight coach, the so called "neutral" game in Dallas could turn out to be a yet another massive strategic blunder by Dan "Chianti" Guerrero.
