AD DeLoss Dodds voices confidence in coach Mack Brown despite BYU debacle, staff shakeup

Texas men's athletic director DeLoss Dodds is expressing confidence in football coach Mack Brown, despite the 40-21 pasting at BYU on Saturday.

The loss led to a coaching staff shake-up, with Brown replacing defensive coordinator Manny Diaz with former assistant Greg Robinson.

In an interview Wednesday with the Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/1d6oEVo), Dodds denied rumors of a meeting by himself, school President Bill Powers and Brown after loss. He also said no such meetings are planned.

Dodds said he approved of Brown's staff shake-up and that Brown has the confidence of himself and the university. In his words, "Mack's fine." Dodds also said he's given no thought to the possibility of retiring.
