Mack Brown will reportedly retire following Texas’ game against Baylor.

Oh, and did I mention that this rumor is entirely ridiculous?

It's so ridiculous the university thought it didn't warrant a comment.

The rumor was started from an obscure Kansas radio station and the source is “in the coaching world in regards to Mack Brown.”

What that really means is anyone’s guess, but the most likely solution is this is a guy just looking for attention.

Brown has brought in a top0-five recruiting class every year since 2008, according to Rivals, and has a contract that gets him an incredible $5.1 million. The 60-year-old coach has absolutely no reason to retire at this point unless the university is forcing him out, but that would have definitely been stated in the initial report.

Additionally, ESPN just started The Longhorn Network, so this would not be the time for the Longhorns' tenured head coach to just retire. He wouldn’t do that to university or its fans at this time.

And one more thing, if Brown were going to retire, you think he would have let coach-in-waiting Will Muschamp take the head job over at Florida? Of course not!

Things are starting to look Texas’ way again and it is easily one of the best jobs in the country.

 Please, please do not take the rumor that Mack Brown would retire this weekend seriously.

Where can I comment?
