Will Mack Brown continue coaching the Texas Longhorns after Saturday's game against Baylor? Several sources have responded to that answer with them all being different, but still uncertain. Sports Illustrated published a report Dec. 6 after speaking with an insider who speculates that Brown may step down as head coach.

“It’s up in the air,” the source said. “My thought is he’ll probably do the right thing for himself and Texas and step down. But coaches have something in their DNA that don’t normally let them do that. How many times have you seen it? With [Joe] Paterno or [Bobby] Bowden? People forget Darrell Royal was 5-5-1 in his last season.”

The source went on to say that no one "knows what Mack is thinking. Everyone is sitting around for the Saturday game to be over and for him to say something.”

University of Texas President Bill Powers insists, however that Brown isn't leaning towards leaving the team when he addressed rumors about Alabama's Nick Saban filling his shoes.

“We don’t have an answer” Powers said. “Mack’s our coach. I haven’t talked to him about the future. Nothing has happened. The team and he are concentrating on the Baylor game.”

Powers added, “That’s for Mack to decide. I think he would (tell me)."

Billionaire UT benefactor, Red McCombs, was asked about his thoughts surrounding rumors that Mack Brown is leaving the team after the game with Baylor Saturday.

“I don’t know,” McCombs said. “But if I were betting, I’d say he’ll be back.”

Mack Brown has a contract to stay with the University of Texas through 2020, the status of his head coaching position of the Longhorns has been a speculated about all season. It's believed that Brown will meet with new athletic director Steve Patterson and Bill Powers to discuss his future after the game against Baylor.
