A high-ranking University of Texas official expects this to be head coach Mack Browns final season with the Longhorns, according to a report by Sports Illustrated.
The official said Brown’s prospects as head coach figures to take a hit if the Longhorns drop their fourth consecutive game against Oklahoma on Saturday. He also speculated that Brown, who remains under contract through 2020, could resign at the end of the season due to athletic director Deloss Dodd’s decision to step down Aug. 31, 2014.
“I'm not sure he wants to work for another athletic director,” the official said in the report. “My guess is this is his last season."
Brown has said in the past that he plans to remain head coach through the end of his contract.
