AUSTIN, Texas — Texas coach Mack Brown is now a $5 million man.
With the Longhorns playing for the BCS national championship, school officials said Wednesday they have restructured his contract to raise his annual salary from $3 million to $5 million.
Brown was to receive a one-time $2 million payment early next year and school officials have now built that into the life of his contract, which runs through 2016. The length of the contract has not changed.
Texas plays Alabama on Jan. 7 at the Rose Bowl for the BCS championship.
