ESPN announcer Adam Amin and analyst Mack Brown are in San Antonio to call Thursday’s Alamo Bowl. Brown, of course, is a well-known figure in Texas, having coached the Longhorns for 15 years, but one local Uber driver wishes he’d recognized the 65-year-old a bit sooner.

Amin shared the story on Twitter Tuesday, saying that after he and Brown got into an Uber in San Antonio, the driver said, “What do you think about the new Texas coach? Cause Mack sure couldn’t coach.”

Brown responded by saying, “He sure couldn’t.” Perhaps his voice rang a bell, because according to Amin, the driver then turned around and exclaimed, “YOU’RE MACK BROWN.”

“Hey there,” Brown replied.

Oof. That had to have turned into one awkward Uber ride, and it certainly left Amin feeling less than complimentary toward their driver.

Brown coached Texas from 1998 to 2013, accumulating a record of 158-48 and a national championship following the 2005 season, but some Longhorns fans criticized him for not doing enough with the talent he recruited. He subsequently latched on with ESPN as an analyst, and this season, he has seen his share of transportation-related issues.

In September, during a telecast of a BYU-Toledo game in Provo, Utah, Amin announced that Brown had to leave the booth, despite the fact that there were still more than 10 minutes to go in the fourth quarter. The ex-coach apparently had to catch a flight back to ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Conn., leaving Amin and sideline reporter Molly McGrath to handle the rest of the contest without him.
