Mack Brown maintained a residence in Linville, North Carolina throughout his 16 years as Texas head coach and had, understandably, increased his time there after stepping down from his post in January. Brown's wife, Sally, is a North Carolina native. In fact, the Browns had recently moved much of their Texas memorabilia to the home.
Unfortunately, that home burned down last week.
According to the Austin American-Statesman, Brown said the only parts remaining are two chimneys.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the blaze.
