07:26 AM ET 09.30 | If it were up to former Heisman Trophy winner Earl Campbell, a new coach would be on the sidelines in Austin. [Campbell] believes it's time for UT coach Mack Brown to be replaced. Campbell, the 1977 Heisman winner and member of the college and pro football halls of fame, told Houston television station KRIV, Fox 26, on Sunday that the Longhorns need a coaching change. "Nobody likes to get fired or leave a job, but things happen," Campbell told KRIV. "I'd go on record and say, 'Yes, I think it's time.'" ... Campbell's comments came on the heels of Southern California's firing of coach Lane Kiffin after a 62-41 loss to Arizona State on Saturday night. "I'd just say this, I take my hat off for USC for what they've done," Campbell said. "They didn't mess around with it. They just said 'let's do it now.'"

Earl does make some good sausage and hot links. So he should know what is best for U.T. football.

It's been time. When your team allows over 500 yards rushing to BYU you should be toast. You can only blame the assistant coaches so long. Help Mack pack.

I think he's doing a great job and should be given 10 more years.

Ouch.

This is different that Tommy Frazier going off on Pelini, right? Doesn't Campbell still carry some favor with the program/fans in Texas?
