Hit the Road Mack?
Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds says rumors that football coach Mack Brown is retiring or being forced out after a 7-5 season are false.
Dodds spoke to The Associated Press by phone from New York, where he and Brown plan to attend Tuesday's college football hall of fame banquet.
Dodds responded to internet rumors that surfaced in recent days saying Brown would retire or be forced out after this season. Texas lost 48-24 at No. 15 Baylor on Saturday, the third loss in four games.
Dodds says he hope his comments will end the rumors.
Dodds says Brown is energized about the future and says the Texas program is in a great place.
Brown is one of the highest paid coaches in the country at $5.2 million per year.
