Mack Brown: Thoughts on current job

Former Texas coach Mack Brown said Monday he has not been contacted by any schools and if a school wants him as its coach, it'll have to wait until December to talk with him.

Even then, Brown said he won't necessarily be interested because he's enjoying his television duties at ESPN and will wait until after the season to make a decision about his future.

Brown, 63, is in his first year working as a college football analyst with ESPN after a lengthy head coaching career at Appalachian State, Tulane, North Carolina and Texas.

"I'm enjoying working in television at ESPN," Brown said. "I've made a conscious decision to concentrate on this through the fall. I jumped into this [job at ESPN] with both feet. [His wife] Sally and I both made a commitment to this.

"I will not make any decisions about my future until December, after I talk with my bosses at ESPN and see if they're happy with me, and then when I can evaluate my first year on television. ESPN and [ESPN president] John Skipper have been great to me."

Brown was 244-122-1 in 30 seasons as a college coach, the last 16 at Texas, which included winning the 2005 national championship.

He said he would not reach out or contact any schools about a coaching position and reiterated he has not been contacted by any schools. Charlie Weis was fired by Kansas on Sunday and June Jones resigned from SMU three weeks ago.

"Only in December will I make a decision whether or not to speak to a university about a coaching position," Brown said.
