Brown Forced Out. Not His Decision To Quit.

For those who believed Mack Brown knew at the football banquet on Fri night that his tenure at Texas was over, you were wrong. Completely wrong. Bill Powers, only the following Sat morning, withdrew his support for Brown. In fact at the banquet the night before, Powers had suggested to Brown that Brown announce his decision to stay at Texas. It was either later that night or early the next morning that Powers allegedly received calls from regents who told him that unless he changed his stance on Brown's return as coach, they would change their stance on Powers' continuance as UT president. It was only at that point that Powers shifted position. Powers had Steve Patterson meet with Brown late Sat morning (after Patterson and Brown had already met for hours earlier) to inform the coach of Powers' decision. Brown at that point had little choice but to announce his resignation, which he did later that morning. This per Yahoo Sports. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/source--mack-brown-forced-out-as-texas-coach-after-president-withdrew-support-005700558.html

Be excellent to each other.
