AUSTIN -- Multiple sources say that Mack Brown will become an ESPN announcer.

No official word from Mack Brown or the University of Texas, but you might remember John Mackovic did the same thing after he lost his coaching job in 1997. Mackovic stayed as a UT adviser. The money paid to Mackovic by ESPN was reduced from his UT paycheck.

The same may be true with Mack Brown, but the ESPN announcing job will not impact the $2.75 million buyout.
