Brown no longer football coach at Texas College

Texas College has decided to end a six year relationship with football coach Jay Brown.

Brown confirmed the school decided not to renew his contract. Brown was informed of the decision Monday afternoon.

In 2003, Brown helped to restore the Steers' football program, after a 40 year hiatus from competition.

The Steers had a 6-15 overall record in the past two seasons, and were 0-8 in Central States Football League play.

Texas College was CSFL champions in 2005 and 2006.

Brown sent the following statement to Steer supporters:

"It is my regret that I will not have a chance to lead Texas College football to another championship on next year. However, in the midst of change there still can be joy.  I will always cherish the relationships and friendships that we have shared in our time together.  Thank You for Your Support!"
