Art Briles wins SI.com's reader bracket to determine the (hypothetical) Texas coach

(Click bracket to enlarge.) (Click bracket to enlarge.)

It's done. Your voice has been heard. Democracy has run its course. Last week, SI.com unveiled a 32-coach, winner-take-all bracket featuring candidates who have been linked -- at one point, in some way or another -- to the open Texas job. Today, we crown a champion. According to you, our noble readership, Art Briles should succeed Mack Brown as the next head coach of the Longhorns.

Briles, who led Baylor to an 11-1 record and its first-ever BCS bowl berth in 2013, gained 54.5 percent of the vote over Jim Harbaugh in the final. Briles captured more than 56 percent in his matchup with Jimbo Fisher in the Final Four after emerging from the hotly contested Ain't Played Nobody Division. Click on the following links for complete voting results from the first, second, third and fourth rounds, respectively.

Texas' ultimate hire remains to be seen, and the school's eight-person search committee is currently considering a number of candidates. But the nation has spoken. The Internet has weighed in. Briles for Bevo.

(*Note: This bracket has absolutely no input on Texas’ actual hiring decision. Well, at least none of which we’re aware.)
