Mack Brown defends Mac McWhorter
AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas coach Mack Brown is defending longtime offensive line coach Mac McWhorter after three games of struggles to run the ball and score touchdowns.
Texas ran for just 93 yards on 43 carries and gave up its first three sacks of the season in a 24-14 win at Texas Tech last week. Television cameras caught Brown chewing out McWhorter on the sideline.
Brown on Wednesday dismissed rumors that McWhorter might be fired as unfair. Brown says he's been known to get emotional on the sidelines and insisted the matter be put "to rest."
