UT Faculty Object to Mack Brown's Salary

35

A resolution criticizing the $5 million pay package for University of Texas football coach Mack Brown as "unseemly and inappropriate" was approved in an unofficial vote at a Faculty Council meeting Monday. The resolution floated by the Faculty Council's executive committee said it was wrong to make the $2 million sweetener permanent at a time when some lecturers, teaching assistants and staff members are facing job losses.

Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain reportedly interviewed last week for the head coaching job at San Jose State, but it appears that he is out of the picture for that opportunity. According to Tom Dienhart, the national senior writer for Rivals.com, McElwain and Washington quarterback coach Doug Nussmeier have turned down the San Jose State job.

Gentry Estes: McElwain out of the picture at San Jose State? So much for the concerns of McElwain's possible departure being a distraction. It looks like he has already turned down the San Jose State job a full four days before practice even begins.

Junior college defensive lineman Brandon Lewis plans to re-sign with Alabama this week and enroll for the start of spring semester, according to Buddy Stephens, Lewis' coach at East Mississippi Community College. Linebacker Devonta Bolton, Lewis' junior college teammate and a fellow 2008 Alabama signee, is not expected to re-sign for spring semester, Stephens said. Reasons are tied to academics, and it's unclear if Alabama will ultimately choose to re-sign the linebacker from Norcross, Ga. Bolton has played one season at EMCC and has three years of remaining eligibility.

Gentry Estes: JUCO prospect Brandon Lewis set to re-sign with Alabama for spring drills To answer the question that has been lingering for almost two years now, it seems like Brandon Lewis will indeed re-sign with the Tide and enroll in the next couple of weeks. For Devonta Bolton, however, he won't be here until the summer at the earliest, and I'm afraid that probably means that he won't end up at Alabama. Perhaps not, of course, but at the very least I do think it significantly lowers the chances that he ends up in Tuscaloosa, relative to what they would have been had he been able to graduate early.

In news that should surprise no one, Alabama junior linebacker and Butkus Award winner Rolando McClain is being projected as the 15th overall selection in the 2010 NFL Draft. This is according to Todd McShay of ESPN's Scouts.Inc., who sees six SEC players being first-round selections. The only one of the six from Alabama's team is McClain, but chances that McClain might be back for his senior season will dwindle as long as the star linebacker is projected so high.
