You gotta hand it to ol’ Mack. He’s retired as head coach, but is still drawing a paycheck from the school as a special advisor to the president. But the prez isn’t the only one getting friendly advice.
Those facts make the conversation between four-star safety recruit John Bonney — a long-time Texas commitment — and Houston ABC station KTRK all the more potentially awkward. In this video, Bonney says that Brown told recruits visiting during the same weekend Brown resigned they should “look around” before signing with the Longhorns…
The complete quote from Bonney:
I was at my official visit when Mack Brown resigned and he told us to go look around. [He said] he’ll even talk to other coaches for you and everything because he really just wanted the best for us as players.
That’s right nice of the man. Although I doubt Charlie Strong agrees.
Boy, imagine what Mack would be telling the kids if he wasn’t on the UT payroll.
