The North Carolina home of former Texas coach Mack Brown was destroyed in a fire last week.

“All that was left were two chimneys standing,” Brown told the Austin American Statesman.

Brown had recently moved several memorabilia items from his home in Austin to North Carolina and all of it was lost.

Brown didn’t share many details on the fire and was unsure how it started.

We’re sure Mack had collected some great stuff during his many coaching stops, including his 15 years as the head coach of the Longhorns. Sad to hear that much of it was lost.
