UT's Brown Meets Media Amid Rumors

Updated: Thursday, December 12 2013, 09:42 PM CST
Answers to questions at Thursday's Alamo Bowl press conference, an event held at a golf club, were "par for the course" for a coach trying to debunk rumors of his impending resignation.

"We're here to talk about the Alamo Bowl and the match-ups," proclaimed Texas head football coach Mack Brown in his first public comments since reports surfaced that he would resign. "We're not here to talk about me."

Before shifting the focus to his team's match-up with Oregon, Brown briefly discussed a meeting that is expected to take place prior to the bowl game; one with much more at stake.

"We've hired what I think is a great athletic director in Steve Patterson," said Brown. "I want to sit down with he and [UT-Austin President] Bill [Powers] in the near future and talk about where we're going and our program is going."

The media contingent was more Super Bowl than Alamo Bowl. And although Mack failed to provide any noteworthy news, one press conference attendee did deliver quotes that will be "red" all over.

"You can't really say anything that will stop the speculation on something like this," admitted Red McCombs, a high-profile Texas booster who backs Mack.

"If you can find a reason to get rid of a guy like that, you'd really have to reach," McCombs said.

McCombs is widely regarded as one of Mack Brown's biggest supporters. However, he's also a straight-shooter. And according to Red, should Mack decide to leave: for UT to find the money to lure Nick Saban away from Alabama won't exactly take divine intervention.

"When Mack came there (Texas), budgets were an issue," recalled McCombs. "They're not an issue now. Hell, all the money that's not up in The Vatican is at UT."

And remember, the Catholic church underwent a rare change in leadership this year. So money may not be the only thing UT has in common with The Vatican.
