Texas coach Mack Brown is negotiating for more money when he leaves coaching to take on a new role at the university after the Longhorns' bowl game, according to a report in the Austin American-Statesman.

Brown's contract says he will receive at least $500,000 a year through 2020, but he's seeking as much as $1.3 million a year as special assistant to Texas president Bill Powers, the newspaper reported, though a school official said that request would not be approved by the university's regents.

"They haven't approved it yet," said Joe Jamail, Brown's attorney. "That price has not been agreed on."

Brown's contract says the $500,000 annual salary is a minimum amount.

Brown resigned Dec. 14, but will coach in Monday's Valero Alamo Bowl against Oregon.
