Mack Brown. Perhaps Brown’s best trait is his people skills: he made every out-of-town media visitor feel like an old friend; he was charming and indulgent with overly interested boosters; and he carried that winning personality with him into high schools and living rooms.

And what, exactly, did that get Brown once he started replace 11 and 10 win seasons with 8 W’s per year? Texas was 13-0 and playing for the national championship as late as Jan 2010. Four years later, with 8, 9, and 8 wins that last 3 seasons, respectively, he’s shown the door.
