Texas president gives Brown his full support'
"I really believe we're headed in the right way, in the right direction," Brown said. "The future looks very, very bright. Football coaches don't look back. You don't want to sit back and talk about all the things that you didn't get accomplished. I'm fortunate to be at a place where the standards are very high and we're going to fight to make sure we get back to those standards.
"If you ask me if I'm happy with three years of non BCS games, I would say no. That's for me, much less everybody else," Brown said.
Powers' statement could be an attempt to quell any rumors about Brown's job on the recruiting trail. Brown spent part of Thursday recruiting and the team is scheduled to host several recruits at its annual football team banquet Friday night.
Also Thursday, Brown would not commit to either David Ash or Case McCoy as his starting quarterback for the bowl game.
Ash started the first 11 games but was pulled during Texas' loss to TCU on Thanksgiving and suffered a rib injury in that game.
McCoy made his only start in Texas' 42-24 loss at Kansas State. At one point, McCoy has 17 consecutive completions but also threw two interceptions that led to Kansas State touchdowns.
