Mack Brown announced over the weekend he was going to resign as the Head Coach of the Texas Longhorns after their Bowl Game. While this was not unexpected, the timing of it seemed suspicious and some within the program have blamed Mack for “blocking” a potential deal to get Nick Saban. As I stated in my rumors post, I never really believed Nick Saban was a real option for the Longhorns, either way it has caused Mack to be berated instead of celebrated.
But after this announcement, it led me to start thinking about potential candidates for the Head Coaching job. There have been plenty of names tossed around, some impressive, some not so much and I even found a few of my own who I thought might be a good fit.
