Mack Brown will receive the American Heart Association’s Paul “Bear” Bryant Lifetime Achievement Award on Jan. 14 at the American Heart Association’s Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards presented by Marathon Oil Corporation in Houston.
Brown coached the Texas Longhorns football program for 16 seasons, leading it to the 2005 BCS National Championship. Brown follows past winners such as former Texas A&M head coach R.C. Slocum (2014) and former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson (2015).
The Bryant Awards have raised more than $6 million in the past 29 years to fund research, advocacy and educational programs across the country that are necessary for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
