Mackovic was an innovator of the passing game. He knew how to stretch and flood zone pass coverage in the late 70's typical defenses and this produced great success by playing smart passing football. Unfortunately, his inability to get along with people was not tolerated for long even when he won. A brilliant tactician, driven, he was unfortunately not a natural leader.


In between his head coaching stints at Wake Forest and the Kansas City Chiefs, Mackovic was an offensive assistant under Tom Landry with the Dallas Cowboys.


Mackovic missed the playoffs in each of his first 3 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. He reached them in his fourth season, but was nevertheless fired afterwards.


Mackovic is best known for a gutsy call in the Inaugural Big 12 championship game in 1996. His Texas Longhorns (a 21 point underdog to the 2-time defending national champion Nebraska Cornhuskers), were leading the game, 30-27, with about 2 minutes to play, and had the ball fourth and inches at their own 28. Mackovic not only decided to go for the first down, but called for his quarterback, James Brown, to fake a running play and roll out and pass the ball. The play worked for a 50 yard gain and Texas ultimately won the Big 12 championship.


Mackovic is known as a lover and collector of wine.


In 2006 Mackovic was named as the head coach of Team USA for the 2007 IFAF World Cup of American Football held at Kawasaki,Japan.
