Red McCombs: "Mack should be back and I bet he will be back."

Bob Levey

Red McCombs thinks Mack Brown has saved the 2013 season and he thinks he should be on the UT sideline in 2014.

San Antonio Billionaire Red McCombs loves his Longhorns, and he says he would be willing to put a little scratch on a bet that Mack Brown will still be the football coach at UT in 2014.

McCombs gave Brown his vote of confidence the day before Texas faces Baylor as a two touchdown underdog. McCombs said that any decision on his future was Brown's to make and that he thinks the 16-year veteran should come back.

But will he?

"I don't know," McCombs said. "But if I were betting, I'd say he'll be back."

The Horns and Bears kick off Saturday at 2:30 pm in the final game at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco. No matter the outcome, it will be a busy weekend for Brown and UT administrators.

UT President Bill Powers, new Athletics Director Steve Patterson and retired AD Deloss Dodds will join Brown on a trip to New York for the National Football Foundation celebration of new College Hall of Fame inductees. Former UT great Jerry Gray will be among the new members inducted into the CFHOF.

Brown has said that he hasn't had a sit-down meeting with his new boss, but that could happen in New York. Brown's contract runs through 2020 and pays him $5.4 million a year. There is a $2.75 million buy out that can be activated within 30 days of the season's end.
