AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – New Texas athletic director says Steve Patterson says he expects a successor to Mack Brown will be found in the next two weeks.
Patterson said before kickoff at the Alamo Bowl on Monday night that he believes Texas needs a new coach by Jan. 15. That’s the end of the so-called “dead period” in the NCAA that prohibits coaches from in-person contact with recruits during bowl season.READ MORE: Appeals Court Ruling Keeps Abortion Ban In Place In Texas

The Alamo Bowl is Brown’s final game at Texas after 16 years. He’s resigning after a rocky final season in which Texas lost at least four games for the fourth consecutive year.
