Mack Brown may not be resigning, but he ‘s sure going to have to fight to keep his job.
Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Brown is indeed in Florida recruiting. This comes on the heel of an earlier report that said Brown would be stepping down.
Forde is reporting that Brown is trying to arrange one last meeting with with school president Bill Powers and new athletic director Steve Patterson for next week in Austin.
Brown is trying to arrange a meeting with school president Bill Powers and new athletic director Steve Patterson for next week in Austin, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports. The three hoped to meet in New York this week at the National Football Federation’s annual function, but Powers was unable to attend.
In his absence, Patterson and Brown met for several hours Sunday, according to sources, in talks that were characterized as positive and productive. But Brown is pushing for another meeting, which includes the president.
Powers is embroiled in his own job crisis, with Gov. Rick Perry among his reported adversaries. A Texas Board of Regents meeting is scheduled for Thursday, with an official agenda item to vote on his continued employment as school president. The outcome of that vote may have an effect on Brown’s status, a source said, citing Powers’ longstanding allegiance to Brown.
