SAN ANTONIO -- While in San Antonio for a pre-Alamo Bowl press conference, University of Texas football coach Mack Brown addressed reports about his future with the Longhorns.

Reports keep pouring in that the football coach will step down, but he continues to deny it. During the conference Coach Brown said he was there to discuss the players and the Alamo Bowl, not his future. He told reporters that his situation has not changed, and that he will be having a meeting with UTPresident Bill Powers and Athletic Director Steve Patterson in the near future.

Chip Brown with is reporting that Brown will step down by the end of the week. The report quotes two high-level sources within the university and says the team's football banquet Friday will honor the Mack Brown era.

But Brown told Tuesday afternoon via text that the report was not true, and that he was in Florida on a recruiting mission.

Another report claims Nick Saban will leave his job as coach of Alabama to take over the Texas football program.

Brown is in his 16th season with the Longhorns.
