    LOS ANGELES -- With Texas preparing for its first Rose Bowl, coach Mack Brown is in line for a raise.

    Brown already is one of college football's highest-paid coaches with a salary of slightly more than $2 million a year. Athletic director DeLoss Dodds told the Associated Press on Monday that details of the new contract will be announced during the week.

    "We like what we've got," Dodds said. "He's done a wonderful job with the program."

    Brown declined to discuss details of his pending contract extension but said he was "excited about the talks."

    "We haven't yet accomplished everything we've wanted to here," Brown said at a Rose Bowl ceremony for the two teams at Disneyland. "There's no better place to coach than the University of Texas."

    Although Brown has been criticized for a five-game losing streak to Big 12 South rival Oklahoma, Texas (10-1) has won at least 10 games the last four seasons and has become a Top 10 fixture in the rankings during his seven years.

    The Rose Bowl will be Texas' first appearance in a Bowl Championship Series game. The Longhorns meet No. 13 Michigan (9-2) on Jan. 1.

      I thought it was somewhat surprising considering his inability to beat Oklahoma.
