Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown, the subject of rumors regarding both his retirement and his firing just weeks ago, is in the process of having his contract re-done, according to the Associated Press. Re-done like how? Well, re-done like $20-something million more coming his way, according to the Austin American-Statesman's Kirk Bohls:
Not entirely sure why such a thing would be necessary (which team was trying to hire away Mack Brown?), but there's the report. Brown's record at Texas is 141-39 with a national championship, but posting two consecutive sixth-place finishes in the Big 12 despite fielding the country's best resources will tend to warm a coach's seat, not earn a decade-long contract. But, heyyy, it's your money, Texas.
