Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds has not wavered in his support of coach Mack Brown.
Dodds told the Austin American-Statesman on Wednesday he wasn’t pleased with the way the Longhorns played against BYU, but that Brown was not in danger of losing his job.
"Mack's fine," Dodds told the paper. "I know we didn't play well Saturday. Mack will know if he should be coaching (at Texas) or shouldn't be. I know this is my responsibility, and I'm not shying away from it. The bottom line is I'm for the kids and the coaches."
Dodds also denied meeting with Brown to discuss his future.
Saturday’s 40-21 loss to BYU was one of the most embarrassing in Texas football history. The Longhorns allowed 550 rushing yards, which prompted Brown to fire defensive coordinator Manny Diaz.
The eyes of Texas will be on the Longhorns this weekend as they face an Ole Miss squad they demolished 66-31 last season. If the Longhorns, whom many thought would be the bell cow of the Big 12 this season, falter in this game, Dodds' tune could change quickly.
