07:23 AM ET 08.22 | While Mack Brown's job opportunities would not be limited, the 62-year-old coach says he really wants one gig: head coach of the Texas Longhorns. For a long time to come. "I want to finish at Texas," Brown told Yahoo! Sports in his office Tuesday. "If I'm healthy and we win, I'm going to try to make 2020 [when his current contract expires]. I think it would be fun to do that, get back on another roll. We're coaching because we like it." ... [Brown is] heading into his 16th season as the Texas coach, with no fear of being told he is no longer the Texas coach. He's that confident school president Bill Powers and athletic director DeLoss Dodds have his back, even if some fans are agitating for change. "I'm not going to [be fired]," he said flatly.

They didn't print the entire quote, which actually was "I'm not going to be fired. I have pics of Deloss having a big ol' time with Candy over at Madam ****'s Midnight Goodies Emporium, so I'm thinking I'm pretty darned safe."

Texas is in denial about their coaching staff! The amount of talent that the state of texas has, this team continues to recruit horribly each year. Mac brown caught lightning in a bottle with vince young,and colt mccoy. A big 12 conference that has had players suc as rgIII,brandon weeden,blain gabbert,and landry jones just to name a few, they have been stuck with the likes of david ash and garret gilbert! He has simply lost his eye for talent and the game has passed him by!

You're fired!

This is what I.T. employees at FanNation have been hearing for the past 2 days.

Bye-bye, Mack.....take the basketball coach and the baseball coach (and the AD) with you when you leave.

Where was coach brown when Dez Bryant,Justin Blackmon,Michael Crabtree,Johnny Manziel,Sam Bradford,Jeremy Maclin,Graham Harrell,Chase Daniels,Josh Freeman, were playing in the big 12 conference. I understand you cant have all of these guys,but if you are the big bad UT you cannot have all these guys play right here in your division and continue to call youreself the cream of the crop school you think you are! Mack you simply need to go!

I seem to recall an infamous quote from then-president EGG @ tOSU:

"I'm just hoping that the coach doesn't dismiss me."

It would be unwise to discount the power of the press and public opinion.

Mack, if A&M keeps improving and happens to win a national championship...you're done.

The arrogance of UT rivals that of Bama, though much less warranted. They had their chance to move in with the big boys in the SEC, but they wanted everything to revolve around them and the SEC would have none of that.

Desmond Harrison cleared to play. Up y'all's, Provo Polygamists.

............And WTF has FN done to their effin' site?

August 22, 2013  11:19 AM ET

wtfjj is going on with this site!

August 22, 2013  11:25 AM ET

Not good if the question is being asked Mack.

August 22, 2013  11:54 AM ET

Look at the bright side of the site functionality fiasco -- Hot Clicks is stll up and doing extremely well!
