Mack Brown is an American college football coach, and a former college football commentator for ESPN. He is currently the head football coach at the University of North Carolina, where he previously coached from 1988 to 1997 before his infamous reign as coach at the University of Texas.

The Longhorns beat the University of Southern California in the 2006 Rose Bowl, Ohio State at The Horseshoe in September 2005, and conference rival Oklahoma in 1998, 1999, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2013. The 2005 season was capped off by victories over Colorado and USC to win the Big 12 Conference and national championships, respectively. Brown achieved his 200th career win during the 2008 season, making him the first Texas coach to reach that mark.

In 2006, he was awarded the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award for "Coach of the Year", and was selected to enter the College Football Hall of Fame in January 2018.
