AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- University of Texas regents are considering making changes to football coach Mack Brown's contract.

Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said last month he wanted to extend Brown's current contract, which runs through 2016, by a couple of years to help end rumors Brown would soon retire.

The regents scheduled a Thursday telephone meeting. Brown's contract is the only agenda item and details were not released.

Brown, 60, is one of the highest paid coaches in the country at $5.2 million per year. Texas went 8-5 with a win in the Holiday Bowl in 2011, his 14th season with the Longhorns. He had his first losing season at Texas in 2010 when the Longhorns finished 5-7.

Brown is 141-39 overall Texas, including a 12-13 mark over the last two years in the Big 12.

Texas won the 2005 national championship and played for the BCS championship again in 2009, losing to Alabama.
