Yahoo Reporting Brown Forced Out At Texas. Did Not Voluntarily Resign.

According to Yahoo, Brown fully intended to continue as head coach of the Longhorns with Bill Powers' blessing. This changed the Sat morn after the banquet when Powers was contacted by unnamed regents who told Powers that they (the regents) would change their vote on Powers unless Powers changed his stance on Brown. Powers acquiesced and later that same morning had Patterson give the word to Brown that Powers no longer supported him. Brown with no support left inside the administration then resigned. It is being reported that before Powers had his mind changed for him, that Powers actually suggested that Brown announce at the Fri night football banquet that Brown had decided to remain as coach! Brown refused because he wanted the focus at the banquet to be on the team. Ironic that hours later Brown was out.
