Report: Mack Brown To Resign As Texas Head Coach

ESPN just came back to commercial in Kentucky-North Carolina to report that Mack Brown will resign as head coach of Texas. According the Longhorn Network (operated by ESPN) is reporting that Brown has informed his team and recruits that he will resign following the Alamo Bowl against Oregon.

Update: Here's Mack Brown somewhat pointed statement on his resignation, making mention of outgoing AD DeLoss Dodds but nothing of incoming AD Steve Patterson :

"Sally and I were brought to Texas 16 years ago to pull together a football program that was divided. With a lot of passion, hard work and determination from the kids, coaches and staff, we did that. We built a strong football family, reached great heights and accomplished a lot, and for that, I thank everyone. It's been a wonderful ride. Now, the program is again being pulled in different directions, and I think the time is right for a change. I love The University of Texas, all of its supporters, the great fans and everyone that played and coached here. I can't thank DeLoss Dodds enough for bringing our family here, and Bill Powers and the administration for supporting us at a place where I have made lifelong friendships. It is the best coaching job and the premier football program in America. I sincerely want it to get back to the top and that's why I am stepping down after the bowl game. I hope with some new energy, we can get this thing rolling again."
