Mack Brown's attorney calls people behind rumors "screaming idiots"

The attorney for University of Texas head football coach Mack Brown was in Beaumont Wednesday, and he spoke to 12News regarding recent rumors that Brown will soon resign his position.

"He'll make that decision when the time comes, when he thinks it's best for the university," Joe Jamail told 12News. "And he's not going to be rushed into it by these screaming idiots who get on the Internet... anonymous, not brave enough to even name themselves."

Earlier this week the web site orangebloods.com, citing two unidentified sources, reported that Brown will announce he is stepping down by the end of the week.

"The reports are wrong, he has not tendered his resignation, he's not made a decision yet, he'll make that decision sometime soon," said Jamail.     

Jamail was at the Jefferson County Courthouse for an unrelated trial when we caught up with him. When asked if he has an idea as to what decision Brown will make, Jamail said, "I'm not a fortune teller."

In 16 seasons at UT, Brown has gone 158-47, and capped off the 2005 season with a national championship victory, but the team has failed to meet expectations over the past 4 seasons.

"You know he brought us from nothing to where we are," said Jamail. "He's  the top winningest coach active in America today. He's number 10 in the all-time history of winning coaches. Now tell me who you think can replace him?"

Jamail said Brown's main focus is football and that he is currently in Miami, Florida on a recruitment trip.
