The denial train continues to chug out of Austin on Tuesday regarding football coach Mack Brown’s future.
Now, it’s Texas athletic director Steve Patterson’s turn.
“We continue to discuss the future of Texas Football. Mack Brown has not resigned. And no decisions have been made,” Patterson said in a statement released to media.
It doesn’t exactly sound like a ringing endorsement of Brown staying on as coach, does it? Sounds to me like decisions are about to be made.
If Texas does make a move, it could happen in the next 48 hours and then the wheels will be in motion to find a replacement for the 16-year head coach. If the Longhorns can’t lure Nick Saban out of Tuscaloosa, who’s next on the list?
Whoever it is will likely be a very, very rich man when this is over.
