Mack Brown statement on Longhorn TV
By David Ubben
Texas coach Mack Brown released a statement regarding the school's announcement of its partnership with ESPN for an all-Texas Longhorn television network set to launch in September 2011.
"What an exciting day for Texas athletics. I applaud [Texas athletic director] DeLoss [Dodds] and President [William] Powers for all of their work in getting this done. Any time you can partner with ESPN on a project, you know it's going to be first class and that it will present unbelievable exposure opportunities for all of our sports and the university. It will allow fans of college athletics across the country to have access to our sporting events and stories on this campus 24 hours a day. That's something everyone here can be really proud of. And, the revenue it produces will both benefit our campus and continue to provide us the resources to manage our programs as well as anywhere in the nation."
