Brown denies rumors that he's resigning

Mack Brown and the University of Texas have denied reports that Brown is stepping down after 16 years as the Longhorns coach.

"We continue to discuss the future of Texas football," UT athletic director Steve Patterson said in a statement. "Mack Brown has not resigned. And no decisions have been made."

The news of Brown's resignation was reported by Chip Brown.

"I'm in Florida recruiting," Brown told Texas247.com  "If I had decided to step down I sure wouldn't be killing myself down here. I have not decided to step down."

Mike Finger reported the same thing on Twitter: "Brown is on a previously scheduled recruiting trip. UT officials denying report that he's said he's stepping down."

Brown met with Patterson in New York City this past week.

The Longhorns finished this season 8-4 and will play Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30.

Texas had a chance to win the Big 12 title on Saturday, but they lost 30-10 to Baylor.

Brown is 158-47 at Texas. That includes a 13-0 season and a national title in 2005.

He has the second-most wins at UT behind legendary coach Darrell Royal (167).

Brown had at least nine wins in his first 12 seasons at Texas and at least 10 wins in nine consecutive seasons.

The Longhorns have gone 5-7, 8-5, 9-4 and 8-4 in the last four seasons, however.

Brown came to the University of Texas after a 10-year stint at North Carolina and a three-year run at Tulane.

Brown, 62, is 238-116-1 in his career.
