Most Texas fans only get to see Mack Brown from a distance, often on the sidelines at DKR-Memorial Stadium. But now that the head coach has joined Twitter, the Longhorn Nation is getting a rare peek at his daily thoughts.
“There’s no grand story as to why he started,” says John Bianco, associate athletic director for media relations. “It’s been something he’s thought about for a while, but we just needed to be sure it fit him.”
It seems to be a good match. Brown, who writes all his own tweets, has made sharing wisdom from the likes of Winston Churchill and Mark Twain a daily priority.
“That’s one of the motivational things he does with his program regularly,” Bianco says, “so he thought that would be a great thing to share with his followers.”
Of course, the coach also talks football. Here’s what Mack had to say during his first few weeks in the Twitterverse.
