Default Chip Brown: Mack Brown threatened to go public...

During his weekly Saturday morning radio show on NBC Sports Radio, Clay Travis interviewed reporter Chip Brown, who was particularly candid was the entire situation at Texas.
Overnight, Brown received what he tabbed as vicious and personal attacks because of misinformation that he reported earlier in the week that Brown would be stepping down head coach.
It appears now, however, that Brown may indeed remain as the head coach of the Longhorns for at least another year.
During Texas’ year-end football banquet last night, news broke that Nick Saban, who many believe was Texas’ target to replace Brown, had signed a contract extension to stay at Alabama.
Brown made no mention of his future at the Texas’ year-end banquet on Friday night, however, Bobby Burton of 247Sports afterwards tweeted, “BREAKING: Source tells me that Mack Brown, following mtg w school prez and AD, will remain coach of the Longhorns.”
Chip Brown told Clay Travis this morning, “This is an unbelievable drama and it has really played out over two years. You had a group of regents and powerful big-money donors who had a conversation with Nick Saban’s agent last January. A former regent went to Mack Brown two days later and said, “Mack, do you still want to coach?” Mack said, “Yes.” Things proceeded, but the thought of Saban as coach never left that group. Mack Brown worked all year under the knowledge that if he didn’t meet certain criteria – 10 wins, BCS bowl-eligibility, BCS birth, at least a share of the Big 12 title – that he would be stepping down because the four-year failed rebuilding project would be too much.
“He knew that group was still focused in on Nick Saban. He was dead-man walking at 1-2. If Iowa State hangs on to an interception or gets a ruling on a fumble later, or Texas fails on the 4th & 7 against West Virginia, we’re not even talking about this because Mack Brown would have stepped down at the end, probably the day after the Baylor game. But because he was still in contention for a Big 12 title, he told the group he was not ready to meet.”
Brown said, “Mack Brown is apparently blaming press leaks for his unhappiness, but he threatened to go public with the details about the regents and the boosters’ attempt to get Saban for two years. That word got to Saban’s camp almost immediately and within an hour he had re-upped with Alabama. And Mack Brown’s future is still totally in limbo. There are billionaires at Texas that want to know why Mack Brown is still the football coach and there is not an offer being made to Nick Saban. That’s where we are. It is amazing. It is amazing.”
