AUSTIN (AP) - Texas coach Mack Brown once welcomed the Longhorn Network. Now he sounds like he’d rather do without it.

Brown complained Monday about his weekly time commitment to produce three shows, the network’s access to practice and the tips opposing coaches may get from watching it.

Brown says he “didn’t ask for” the network, the school’s 20-year collaboration with ESPN that pays Texas $300 million.  Brown says he wants to sit down with network and school officials to address his concerns.

The network shows the first 30 minutes of daily drills and some of the conversations coaches have with players.  Brown says a Texas staff member monitors the network to make sure not too much is revealed.
