AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas says coach Mack Brown has stepped down and that the Alamo Bowl against Oregon on Dec. 30 will be his last game with the Longhorns.

The school announced the move Saturday.

Brown led the Longhorns to the 2005 national championship and ranks second at the school in career victories. He’s stepping down after 16 seasons — and one tumultuous week of reports and speculation that this was coming.

He is 158-47 at Texas, but 30-20 the last four seasons, including 19-17 in the Big 12.

The 62-year-old Brown was hired at Texas from North Carolina in 1997 and was credited with reviving a dormant program. Texas had a run of dominance from 2001-2009 when the Longhorns went 101-16. He is one of the highest-paid coaches in the country at $5.4 million this year.
