Texas football coach Mack Brown will retire after this Saturday's game against Baylor, according to a report.
Kansas-based WIBW580 sports radio host Jake Lebahn reported on Thursday that Brown will retire on Saturday after 18 seasons with the school. Lebahn cited sources within the college football coaching community as his source of information for the breaking news.
Chip Brown of OrangeBloods.com disputed the report later on Thursday; reporting that a Texas official told him the Brown retirement report wasn't worth responding to. Brown later tweeted out that I'm told Mack Brown doesn't plan to retire anytime soon.
No other organization has confirmed the report, though there has been recent pressure on Brown to perform better. Texas is 7-4 on the season and has largely been out of the conversation this season, while rivals Oklahoma and Oklahoma State both emerged as BCS championship contenders.
The 60 year-old has a 223-109-1 coaching record over his long career and currently is one of the highest paid coaches in the country - earning more than $5 million per year.
