Texas coach Mack Brown disappointed Earl Campbell calling for his ouster

Oklahoman Published: September 30, 2013

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas coach Mack Brown says he's disappointed former Longhorns running back and Heisman Trophy winner Earl Campbell says Brown should be replaced.

Brown has faced intense scrutiny and public speculation about his job after a 2-2 start this season. Campbell told Houston television station KRIV on Sunday that Brown should be replaced and applauded Southern California for firing Lane Kiffin early in the season.

Campbell won the Heisman in 1977 and remains one of the most popular players in school history. The university placed a statue of Campbell at Royal-Memorial Stadium in 2006. Brown on Monday declined to criticize Campbell's comments and said Campbell would always be welcome at the school. He says Campbell is entitled to his opinion.
