Austin (CBS HOUSTON)
– A source tells SportRadio 610 that if Mack Brown does not resign as University of Texas football coach before a Board of Regents meeting on Thursday he will be removed from the position.  No date was provided on when that removal would happen.

That same source tells SportsRadio 610 that Brown, 62, was prepared to resign this week after 16 seasons as the Longhorns head football coach, but was not happy when news of the story leaked before he could tell his players and coaching staff. It is expected that he will resign, but if he doesn’t, the Board of Regents needs a majority of it’s members to vote for his ouster, and SportsRadio 610 has been told they have the votes.

Texas would like to have Brown’s replacement in place immediately and have identified Alabama coach Nick Saban as their top target. A report that surfaced out of Fort Worth on Tuesday night said Saban would be named Texas coach on Friday.  SportsRadio 610 cannot confirm that, though sources say that report is in line with UT’s thinking.

Saban, 62,  has not been formally offered a contract by Texas, and can’t be until the Board of Regents meeting on Thursday. It is expected that the school will offer him a contract that will pay him at least $6 million annually with performances incentives believed to be worth and extra $2 million a season.

On top of the salary he will earn from the school, multiple sources tell SportsRadio 610 that Texas alums are trying to “pass the hat” to collect $10-$20 million extra to give Saban as a bonus for coming to the school.
