FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Tuesday: Reggie Miller
Tuesday: Christian McCaffrey

Texas coach Mack Brown joined the show to talk about their struggles this season and more.

Dan asked why he would do an interview considering how much negative news there is out there. He says he feels its his role as a veteran coach to continue a dialogue with coaches and the media.

“I don’t want our players ducking,” Brown said. “I don’t want our assistant coaches ducking. I want to go compete, fight.”

Brown said he’s not bothered by all the outside pressure. “I don’t care about what’s said outside,” Brown said. “It’s negative when you win sometimes at Texas.”

Dan asked Brown who will decide when his days are over at Texas. “I would think it would be me,” Brown said.

Brown said he wanted to send a message to young coaches: don’t buy into the negativity, and don’t give up.

Dan asked Brown about why he didn’t land Robert Griffin III, Johnny Manziel and Jameis WInston. Here’s Brown’s answer on each one:

Robert Griffin III: “Yes we did [offer him a scholarship} and he was not interested, because we have Colt McCoy starting.”

Johnny Manziel: “We never offered Johnny. And we sure didn’t offer him as a safety.”

Jameis Winston: “[We heard] you got absolutely no chance. If anyone can get him , it’s Alabama. …  Obviously I would have recruited him really hard if we had a chance.
