Mack Brown says he's 'luckiest guy in the world'

After yet another blowout loss to OU, Mack Brown's job security is as tenuous in Austin as it's been in over a decade.

While the Texas coach received a pass from the fans for the team's 13-12 record in the last two years, the additions of Bryan Harsin and Manny Diaz to the coaching staff was supposed to re-invigorate a program that had grown complacent after nearly a decade of 10-win seasons.

However, the embarrassing 63-21 loss last Saturday brought the doubters who had hung over Brown's career ever since he earned the moniker "Mr. February" for his ability to reel in blockbuster recruiting classes but not win conference titles at UNC or UT.

But while fans are in a tizzy, Brown professed not to feeling any pressure in a press conference this week (courtesy of the Washington Post):

Brown said he doesn't face the constant pressure coaches do at other schools.

"I've got great bosses. This job isn't like the others," Brown said. "I'm the luckiest guy in the world."

Brown has made over $5 million a year the last three seasons to helm a team that has slipped far behind OU in the conference hierarchy while assembling a career 5-9 record against Bob Stoops.

He's not kidding when he calls himself lucky.
