Meet the Speaker:
Chip Brown is an award-winning journalist who has spent nearly 30 years covering college football for The Associated Press, The Dallas Morning News and – since 2017 – for Horns247.com.
Brown is a Heisman Trophy voter who got it right in 2005 and voted for Vince Young.
In the summer of 2010, Brown broke the story nationally about the Pac-10’s attempt to add six schools form the Big 12 and appeared almost daily on ESPN’s SportsCenter, College Football Live and Outside the Lines to discuss his reports. His ability to dominate the story was featured by Sports Illustrated and CNBC.
Brown has broken numerous stories on the Texas beat.
His in-depth reporting on former athletic director Steve Patterson’s morale-crushing performance on the job contributed to Patterson’s dismissal by then-UT president Greg Fenves after just 22 months on the job.
Brown’s most recent massive scoop came on Jan. 2, when he was hours ahead of the competition, including ESPN -who quoted his story – that Steve Sarkisian would be replacing Tom Herman as UT’s new football coach.
