SAN ANTONIO -

Texas coach Mack Brown isn't saying whether the Alamo Bowl will be his final game with the Longhorns amid intense speculation about his future.
    
Brown said Thursday he has yet to talk with new Texas Athletic Director Steve Patterson and university president Bill Powers about his job. He deflected several other questions about his future during a news conference about Texas' bowl game against Oregon on Dec. 30.
    
Brown acknowledged the Longhorns (8-4) didn't finish how they wanted after starting the season talking about competing for a national championship.
    
Joe Jamail, Brown's longtime friend and attorney, said this week that Brown's future is still up to the Texas coach.
    
Brown won a national championship in 2005, but fan frustration has mounted after a string of disappointing seasons.
