From Texas to Tuscaloosa, the pressure is mounting on Mack Brown to say something — anything — about his future with the Longhorns.

Brown was scheduled to meet with school President Bill Powers and new Athletic Director Steve Patterson on Friday to discuss the future of the football program and whether he plans to return for a 17th season, a meeting before the annual team banquet Friday night.

Despite widespread speculation that Brown was considering retirement, Brown has said publicly only that "my situation has not changed" and that he was looked forward to meeting with his bosses.

Powers and Patterson also have said little to suggest whether Brown stays or leaves.
