Mack Brown, on A&M controversy: ‘I’ve never lost a women’s clinic’

This one will leave a mark.

As Texas A&M is wrapped up in controversy over the sexist presentation put on by a pair of Aggie assistants at a women’s football clinic last week, the former head coach of a one-time rival, Texas’ Mack Brown, made an appearance on the Paul Finebaum Show on Monday. During that appearance, Brown was asked about the controversy in College Station and, before getting serious, he got in a little jab at his former rivals.

“I’ll tell you one thing Paul, I’ve never lost a women’s clinic” - @ESPN_CoachMack

We had 30 years of them, and [they’re] supposed to be a positive upbeat — more like a pep rally to talk football and get ready for the season. ...

“It’s just inappropriate. Coaches across the country — and men — are trying to teach young players to be appropriate with their behavior towards women. This is an awful message. ...

“These guys got suspended, but to me, they need counseling. They need to get some help to make sure they do a better job in their personal lives, so the players will learn better from them how to treat ladies.

Brown added that this is a “distraction that [A&M head coach] Kevin [Sumlin] didn’t need,” seemingly a nod to the ever-growing heat underneath the coach’s seat entering what could be a make or break season for his tenure with the Aggies.
