Decision Within 48 Hours

A decision on Mack Brown will be made within 48 hours, a source tells Horns247.

Mack Brown's 16-year tenure at Texas is at a crossroads. That's according to one high-ranking Texas source.

"I think there will be a decision (about Brown's job) within the next 48 hours," the source told Horns247 moments ago.

According to the Austin American-Statesman and the Dallas Morning News, Brown met with Texas athletic director Steve Patterson on Sunday on a plane ride to New York City. During that time, sources told Horns247 that Brown was not asked to resign.

If Brown returns to Texas for the 2014 season he'll be looking to improve a team that just finished up an 8-4 regular season and is getting ready to face No. 10-ranked Oregon in the Valero Alamo Bowl. The Longhorns are 30-20 over the past four seasons, including an 18-17 mark in Big 12 play with only five wins in their last 19 games against ranked opponents over that time span.

If Brown doesn't return he'd finish as the second winningest coach in school history with a 158-47 record. He's led the Longhorns to the 2005 BCS title, a title game appearance in 2009, two other BCS bowls, two Big 12 titles, four outright Big 12 South Division championships and nine straight seasons of at least ten wins (2001-2009) including a run from 2004-2009 where Texas was 69-9.
