Brown to stay at Texas through 2020Jan 27, 2012 - 2:01 AM Austin, TX (Sports Network) - The University of Texas has agreed to a four- year contract extension with Mack Brown that will keep the head football coach on the Longhorns' sideline through 2020.
Brown, 60, has been the head coach at Texas for the past 14 seasons and led the program to a national championship in 2005.
"It is important to us to have Mack Brown as our football coach for as long into the future as we can. This contract is an expression of that," Texas president Williams Powers Jr. said. "For 14 years he's had tremendous success on the field and equally important, more important, he's represented the university with class, with integrity."
