AUSTIN, TEXAS (AP) - ESPN says it is pursuing a deal with the University of Texas to distribute the school’s proposed Longhorn Network on cable television.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said Friday the network and university are “in discussions” but would not comment on how much the deal would be worth.

Texas has been considering launching its own network for several months and it was one of the reasons the school chose to stay in the Big 12 rather than accept an offer to join the Pac-10.

A Texas spokesman declined comment. The SportsBusiness Journal first reported the discussions.
