When Mack Brown arrived in Texas, the Longhorns had not been a great team for many years. He brought Darrell Royal back into the family and included high school coaches in his game plan. His signature of recruiting players early is now industry standard. He has been to two
national championships, winning one, and building the Texas program to one of the best in football history. He deserved our respect and admiration, but in order for Texas football to change and grow, it is time for a new era.
That era will begin when Nick Saban signs his contract with Texas and the Longhorns begin anew. Supposedly a contract for a new Saban house has been signed in Austin. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what our new coach has to offer.
