Reports: Mack Brown to join ESPN as college football analyst

Erich Schlegel

Former Texas Longhorns head football coach Mack Brown may be hard at work again this fall in a new capacity as a college football analyst for ESPN this fall, according to multiple reports:

Known for his personable nature and often compared to a politician, Brown has long been thought a likely candidate to end up as an analyst on television following his coaching career, which may have ended for good following his resignation in December. One of the popular rumors always held that Brown might replace the aging Lee Corso on College Gameday, a program that has seemingly climbed in popularity every season.

For now, however, with Corso still donning mascot heads and hamming it up with the rest of the crew, it appears that Brown will work in-studio, perhaps as a 2015 replacement for mealy-mouthed Lou Holtz, who has said that he will retire after the upcoming college football season, though ESPN has denied it.

One would hope that if that happens, Brown doesn't end up acting the fool like Holtz.
