AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Just like other college football fans, Texas coach Mack Brown can kick back, turn on the television and spend the next several weeks channel surfing between bowl games. He's got the time.
For the first time in nearly 20 years, Brown isn't coaching in a bowl because his Texas Longhorns finished 5-7 and didn't qualify for one.
That doesn't mean, however, that his days won't be busy. Minutes after Texas lost to rival Texas A&M on Thanksgiving night, Brown said he he'll take a hard look at his assistant coaches, players and staff as he tries to fix what went wrong in the Longhorns' worst season since 1997.
