Mack Brown has lasted 16 years as the Texas football coach, and maybe that’s enough.

No, we’re not talking about how that’s enough for Texas — maybe that should be enough for Brown, who certainly can’t be having fun as he occupies a job that apparently nobody in the Lonestar state wants him to have.

Brown, 62, already has spent 16 years coaching the Longhorns. He has a national championship and a pair of conference titles. He was national coach of the year twice.

Why bother with the hassle? Why not retire and go to work with ESPN, which seems to have room for every out-of-work coach somewhere on its set? Let somebody else deal with Texas’ issues.

Brown’s lawyer is denying a report that the coach has resigned, but it certainly isn’t a bad idea. Take the money and drift into retirement.

He should go for it. Nobody would blame him.
