AUSTIN, Texas (AP) The Texas assistant football coach being sued by Oklahoma State says he can't get a fair trial in Stillwater and the case should be heard in Austin, home of the Longhorns.

Joe Wickline last week asked an Oklahoma court to dismiss Oklahoma State's breach-of-contract lawsuit. And if it goes to trial, Wickline says Oklahoma State is too powerful for him to get a fair trial in Oklahoma state court.

Wickline says Travis County, Texas, where he now works for the Longhorns, is a ''more just and proper'' venue. Or he suggests an Oklahoma-based federal court.

Oklahoma State is suing Wickline for nearly $600,000, arguing he took a lateral move to Texas, not a promotion, as specified in his contract.

Texas plays at Oklahoma State on Saturday.
