Brown spent 16 years at the helm of Texas, coaching the Longhorns to a 158-47 overall record. He won one national championship (2005) while at Texas. He also appeared in the 2009 title game, losing to Nick Saban and Alabama.
Despite Brown’s overwhelming success as a head coach, he failed to coach the team to double-digit win seasons in the past four years.
*UPDATE* Mack Brown and Texas have denied the initial report that he has stepped down.
*UPDATE* Bruce Feldman reports that two sources have confirmed Chip Brown’s report.
