My point is that I believe Mack Brown would still be the head coach of the Texas Longhorns if the decision was totally up to him. It wasn't. He isn't.
If the decision comes totally down to O'Brien, if the Texans say, "We want you." It will be O'Brien's decision to leave Pen State.
I understand it doesn't make sense for any college HC to say he's not staying. I never argued that point. I don't know if it's in their contracts or just common sense.
