Brown was born to a family that had a long history with football, with his grandfather, father and brother all being football coaches. He attended Cookeville’s Putnam County High School and later enrolled at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and then in Florida State University. He also attended the University of Southern Mississippi, graduating in 1976. Brown played football at Vanderbilt and Florida, establishing a promising career. Unfortunately, that career was ended by an horrific injury, and so he turned to coaching.
His career as a student coach for wide receivers started in 1973, at Florida State University. Leaving Florida’s Seminoles in 1975, he spent two years coaching the Eagles of the University of Southern Mississippi, followed by a one-year stint with the Memphis Tigers of the University of Memphis. In 1979 he coached the Cyclones of Iowa State University, eventually being promoted to offensive coordinator. In 1982 he served as the quarterbacks coach at Louisiana State University, and the following year he got his first head coaching job with the Mountaineers of Appalachian State University in North Carolina, after which he spent one year as offensive coordinator of the Oklahoma Sooners of the University of Oklahoma. His net worth was established.
From 1985 to 1988 he served as the athletic director and head coach of the Tulane Green Wave of Tulane University, considerably improving the team’s statistics and bringing them to their first Bowl Game in many years. In 1988 he became the head coach at the University of North Carolina, bringing the Tar Heels to five bowl games in consecutive years, and significantly contributing to the team’s game and popularity. All added to his net worth.
Brown’s successful bringing of high talent recruits earned him the position of the head coach of the Texas Longhorns of the University of Texas in late 1997, signing a contract offering around $750,000 a year. This deal eventually rose to over $5 million a year, excluding bonuses and incentives, boosting Brown’s wealth considerably. During his tenure with the Longhorns, Brown led the team through a run of dominance from 2001-2009, winning 10 or more games each year, that is, 158 games and two Big 12 titles, which is the longest streak of 10+ win seasons in the nation. Under him, the team participated in two national championships, capturing their championship title in 2005. Achieving his 200th career win in 2008, Brown became the first Texas coach to accomplish that feat. The following year he became first among all active coaches with 20 consecutive winning seasons. In 2013, after 16 seasons with the Longhorns, he resigned from his position of Texas’ head coach, having built a healthy net worth.
Brown’s remarkable career in football, which lasted around 40 years, enabled him to earn numerous awards, including the 2008 Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year, plus many of his players earned awards too, as well as being highly valued in NFL Drafts.
Aside from his coaching career, he has also been involved in television. He made a cameo appearance in the television series “Friday Night Lights”, and has appeared in commercials for College Game Day. He currently serves as a college football commentator for ESPN.
When it comes to his private life, Brown has been married to Sally Brown since 1993. The couple has four children.
The former coach has been involved in philanthropy and various community affairs. Along with his wife, he serves as honorary co-chairperson of the Capital Campaign for the Helping Hands of Austin. The couple has also supported The Rise School of Austin, and has served on the school’s Board of Directors. Additionally, the Browns have been involved in raising public awareness for child abuse and neglect, and the need for Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteers. Following the Aggie Bonfire tragedy at Texas A&M in 1999, the couple set up a blood donation drive on the UT campus, gathering over 250 blood donors. Their contributions to Austin led the city’s Mayor Lee Leffingwell to pronounce 30 January 2014 as “Mack and Sally Brown Day”.
