AUSTIN, Texas – Mack Brown's attorney says the Texas coach has not resigned, denying a report that Brown was ready to step down after 16 seasons with the Longhorns.
Orangebloods.com is reporting, citing two unidentified sources, that Brown will announce he is leaving Texas and that an announcement could come later this week.
Joe Jamail, Brown's longtime friend and attorney, told The Associated Press on Tuesday: "Mack Brown has not resigned." He says Brown's future with Texas is still up to the coach.
Horns247.com, a Texas recruiting website, is reporting that Brown denied the report in a text from Florida, where he was recruiting.
Brown writes to Horns247: "I have not decided to step down."
Messages left with Texas spokesmen were not immediately returned.
