ESPN’s Adam Amin was traveling in San Antonio with former University of Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown when the two hailed an Uber together. What transpired in that ride-share vehicle would eventually make for quite the story on Twitter.

Mack Brown and Adam Amin share the Friday night booth these days, calling the play-by-play for ESPN, but it wasn’t that long ago when Mack Brown was the biggest named coach in the state of Texas. It appears that in spite of winning the 2005 National Championship for the Texas Longhorns many Texans still hold a grudge towards Mack:

After the Longhorns endured a losing season in 2010, missing a bowl game for the first time under Mack Brown’s tenure, the writing was on the wall. He eventually tendered his resignation in 2013 after the program, one of the historical greats in college football, continued to slip into obscurity. Coach Brown had 20 CONSECUTIVE WINNING SEASONS yet here he is getting trashed by an Uber driver.

Mack Brown’s legacy in Texas is not even in the same stratosphere as Bobby Bowden’s legacy in the state of Florida, but there are many similarities in how the two head coaches were treated during the latter portions of their careers. They were both essentially ran out of town after several years of producing poor results, and even the staunchest of fans turned on these coaches, forgetting that just a few years prior their beloved teams has just won the National Championship…It’s just not right.
