The Texas Longhorns had a dismal season this year, finishing with a record of 5-7 and placing last in the Big 12 South.
For a program with such a great history, this is just unacceptable, but firing the coach is not the answer here. Sure maybe a coordinator needs to be axed, but firing a coaching legend because of just one season is just insane.
Here are some reasons why Mack Brown should not be fired from Texas.
Brown has a coaching record of 219-108-1. He has been such a successful coach and has been the general of the Longhorns since 1998.
Through his coaching career, Brown has a bowl record of 11-7.
Brown is a great recruiter and a great coach, although keeping him just to keep a legend isn't right, Brown still has enough in the tank to keep coaching the Longhorns.
Players want to play for coach Brown. He is well-liked by players and is very successful at getting them to play at a high level in big games. Although this may not have been evident this season, it is usually a given that Texas is a powerhouse in college football.
They are usually ranked and have some of the best stock of recruits to choose from in the great state of Texas.
Brown has the ability to get high-caliber players to play for him, and play to their best potential.
Brown led the Longhorns to a National Title and could easily doing it again. Surely this year was just a fluke, and Texas will once again be a threat for the title again soon.
Why would Texas want to give up a coach who could easily turn around and coach another Big 12 team to be a thorn in their side?
If Mack Brown didn't think that he could win at Texas still, he would step down. The man is one of the most genuine coaches in the the country.
He is a winner, and if he is not winning, he will step down.
He doesn't seem like the type to just coach to coach. He is currently the highest paid coach in college football and just doesn't seem like the type that would stay to just stay.
What is better than having a veteran coach recruiting players to rebuild a program. Mack Brown is truly the man for the job. He is Texas football and he will be able to bring the program back to the top in the next few years.
Getting rid of Brown would just be a deathly mistake for Texas football. When the time is right, he will step down and hand over the reins, but until then, it is best to keep this football legend.
Garrett Gilbert is one of the best young quarterbacks in the country. This season alone he threw for 2,774 yards and 10 touchdowns. Brown is known as a great quarterback coach, and this youth is lucky to have him.
Brown will be able to develop Gilbert into a winner, and will eventually lead him to success in the NFL.
Mack Brown is just too important to the Texas Program to get rid of him yet, so all of you Longhorn fans remember, one bad season doesn't necessarily translate into a multitude of them.
