We have heard it from the Longhorns fans for the past two years: "Fire Mack Brown." "Fire Bryan Harsin." And now this year "Fire Manny Diaz."
Up until 2010, Mack Brown won 83% of his games at Texas, including two Big 12 Championships, two appearances in the National Championship, and one National Championship trophy. But after the 5-7 season in 2010, 8-5 season in 2011, and being dismantled by Oklahoma three years in a row, the Texas fan base has grown tired of the issues the Longhorns have shown. So what does this mean for the future of the Texas coaches, primarily Mack Brown?
"DeLoss (Dodds) and Bill Powers are so good to me. The trustees are one hundred percent in their support. And if you look at all of the four and two teams in the country some are good teams that are four and two. Some are going to end up good and some are going to end up bad so we need to end up on the good side.
"I am the luckiest guy in the world that's why I know I have time to fix it. And I can." Mack Brown said to the media. "When I decided to come back I told Bill Powers and DeLoss (Dodds) it was going to take some time, two years ago after Will (Muschamp) left. We sat down and had hard discussions. They were one hundred percent in their support and said 'You can move forward with this thing. We want you to stay and we will give you the time and money to do it.'"
Mack went on to discuss his problems with the Longhorns game against Oklahoma last Saturday, how he handles his coordinators after such an embarrassing loss, and his will to bring success back to Texas in A Look at the Texas Coaches.
