According to the Longhorn Network, Texas coach Mack Brown will resign after 16 seasons with the University. After months of speculation about his tenure with Texas, it finally looks like Brown will call it a career with the Longhorns on Saturday.

Although the departure comes in December, Brown will coach Texas in the Valero Alamo Bowl against Oregon.

On Friday, CBSsportsline.com reported that Mack Brown would remain coach of the Longhorns next season. Now the reality has to set it that Texas must look for a new coach.

ESPN reports that Mack Brown said it’s “been a wild ride” as coach of the Texas Longhorns. Mack Brown became the Texas coach in 1998 and started off his Longhorn career with nine wins. After two more nine win seasons, Texas took off with a string of 10 win seasons.

Brown led Texas to nine straight 10 win seasons from 2001-2009. That run included a 2004 National championship that culminated in a 2005 Rose Bowl victory over USC.

Four years later, Texas earned their second BCS championship berth, but lost to Alabama in Colt McCoy’s last game.

Since that moment, the wheels have fallen off for the Texas Longhorns. They’ve had trouble finding a stable quarterback situation and he became a victim of his own success. Brown finished his Texas career with (158-47) record. In his 16 years, Mack Brown won 10 bowl games.

With Nick Saban fully entrenched at Alabama, it will be interesting to see where Texas goes to find a new head coach.
