A formal press conference on Mack Brown’s resignation as coach of the Texas Longhorns football team is scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday, university officials said.
Brown announced Saturday that he is stepping down as the Longhorns’ coach after 16 years, capping a wild week of speculation over his and the program’s future.
Brown informed the team during practice for the the Alamo Bowl, which is scheduled for Dec. 30. He will coach the Longhorns against Oregon at the Alamodome in San Antonio, then remain at UT as special assistant to the president, according to Joe Jamail, Brown’s attorney and UT benefactor.
Under Brown, Texas won a national title and two Big 12 championships.
