Mack Brown supposedly had three head coaching offers

Mack Brown TexasMack Brown may have been pushed out at Texas this year, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t a desirable head coach for other programs.

Brown’s attorney Joe Jamail says the longtime Longhorns coach had three head coaching offers this fall, including two serious ones, according to Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman.

Bohls also reports that Brown will make $500,000 a year as a special advisor to Texas president Bill Powers through 2020.

At 62, Brown is still young enough where he could take on another job for a handful of years, but how well would he do? When coaches appear to run out of steam, it generally is hard for them to have too much success elsewhere. I think Brown could do well at a smaller school with lesser expectations, but I doubt his ability to succeed at another big program.

He hasn’t decided yet if he will retire.
