Brown, 60, has been at Texas since 1998, compiling a 227-113-1 overall record. He has won the Big 12 Coach of the Year Award twice (2005, 2009) and won the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award in 2005, the year he coached Texas to a National Championship. After winning 13 games and going to the National Championship game in 2009, Brown’s Longhorns struggled in 2010, going 5-7 and failing to make a bowl game for the first time in Brown’s tenure. In 2011, the Longhorns went 8-5 and won the Holiday bowl.
