Uber Driver Slamming Texas Coach Mack Brown Realizes Brown is His Passenger

Mack Brown: 238-117-1 major-college record; Bowls: 13–8; 1 national championship

A Texas Uber driver who struck up a conversation about football got the shock of his life after criticizing Texas Longhorns coach Mack Brown, and then turned around to see the coach sitting right there in his back seat.

ESPN contributor Adam Amin rode with the Longhorns coach in San Antonio just ahead of the Valero Alamo Bowl game, and related the story in a series of tweets. As the pair jumped into an Uber, the driver began a conversation about the team Brown had coached until 2013 and he wasn’t gentle about his criticism, Uproxx.com noted.

Amin also had a kicker tweet to make the situation even funnier.

The criticism of Coach Brown was pretty harsh, though. Brown had a fairly successful record at Texas especially in light of the far less successful record of his recently fired successor, Charlie Strong, let go for his dismal performance. After all, as coach of the Longhorns, Brown won six division championships, two conference championships along with a national title.

While the Uber driver certainly felt embarrassed, Amin admits that his “one star review” quip was just a joke. The ESPNer did not leave a one star review over the driver’s comment.
