    After 16 seasons and a national championship, a source tells the Associated Press that University of Texas head football coach Mack Brown will resign.

    The decision comes after a week of conflicting reports about Brown's future.

    The resignation will happen following the Texas Longhorn's game against Oregon in The Valero Alamo Bowl on December 30 in San Antonio.

    Brown, who is 158-47 at Texas, won a national championship in 2005, but fan frustration has mounted after a string of disappointing seasons despite returning to the national title game in 2009. Since then, the Longhorns are 30-20 and 18-17 in the Big 12.

    The 62-year-old Brown was hired at Texas from North Carolina in 1997 and was credited with reviving a dormant program. Texas had a run of dominance from 2001-2009 when the Longhorns went 101-16.

    He is one of the highest-paid coaches in the country at $5.4 million this year.

    Editors Note: when we first published this story, we incorrectly stated Brown's record at Texas was 158-7. We have corrected our story.
