Mack Brown is one of the most beloved and successful coaches in Texas Longhorns history. However, after back-to-back subpar seasons, could he be on the hot seat?
In 2009 Texas was in the BCS National Championship Game. In 2010, Texas didn't even make a bowl and in 2011, the Horns rebounded slightly to win eight games.
2012 could be a legacy defining season for Brown.
If he can bring the Longhorns all the way back from rock bottom he would cement himself as a college football coaching legend. If they struggle though, the questions about Brown's ability to coach would continue to mount.
To take a look at Brown's performance I will present a hot seat coaching scale, ranked from one to five.
Each slide will have a breakdown of what encompasses the level and what Brown would have to do in 2012 to be there.
So, let's take a look at how hot Brown's seat will be by the end of the season.
