Texas three major sports have been down for several years. All three coaches will be back next year. If you were the Texas AD what would be your expectations for each coach to keep their job. What would their teams need to accomplish to make you believe they are moving forward?
Mack Brown. Texas needs to win the conference championship or at least win 11 games and a BCS bowl.
Rick Barnes: Texas needs to get NCAA tournament and at least win one game
Augie Garrido: Texas needs get to the Baseball Championship tournament and get to the Super Regionals.
If I were Dodds, then my expectation would be for no one to cause nuclear winter before I get my pat on the back consulting job and annuity.
If I were anyone else and holding the position of Texas AD, then I would want the teams to accomplish great things and move forward, but I'd still be asking every head coach to move on. I would have next to no confidence that they could maintain excellence. I suppose a deep tourney run and a huge recruiting class for Barnes might still change my mind about him, since basketball recruiting is so coach dependent. Otherwise, it appears time to clean house of the 9 million dollar men.

Answer: The opposite of what we're seeing right now.
Mack - Big 12 Championship and 10+ wins (I could see the champion having 3 losses this year)
Barnes - Miracle Sweet 16 run (no chance). He's lost control of his team and lost the state to Baylor
Augie - I honestly believe that he'll leave on his own terms before getting fired. Out of the 3, I feel like he's the only one who is truly embarrassed about his team's poor performance. But to go along with the question, he needs to get us back to Omaha
Donna Lopiano, former Women's AD at Texas, once said that she expects all her coaches at Texas to be in the Top 10 and graduate all their athletes. Anything less, she said there would be a discussion.
