Just days after finishing up the 2011 Southeastern Conference Media Days in Birmingham, AL, Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp traveled to Bristol, CT and was put through ESPN‘s self-named car wash – appearing on nearly a dozen of the network’s media platforms over the course of one business day. OGGOA followed Muschamp’s appearances throughout the day and put together the following recap:
He started the morning on the set of ESPN2‘s First Take, where he and Auburn head coach Gene Chizik competed in school trivia and a putting contest (neither made it).
Muschamp then taped a segment for GameDay Radio before heading over to the Scott Van Pelt Show to speak about representing the University of Florida, the passion of the SEC, his primary concern for the team (staying healthy), redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley, being himself on the field and more. [Listen]
He continued his radio tour by visiting The Herd with Colin Cowherd, where he discussed the pressure to win, depth of the SEC, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, the NFL lockout, paying players and more. [Listen]
Next up were taped segments for ESPNU and Storycast, which he completed before moving on to do some work with the folks who operate Page 2 of ESPN.com.
Muschamp’s day then included a spot on SportsCenter, where Chris Fowler interviewed him about getting started in his efforts to turn around the Florida program.
After that was a Twitter chat, three more taped segments (College Football Live, SportsCenter Tonight radio, SportsNation), a trio of social media appearances (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter) and a spot on ESPN Radio Dallas.
OGGOA will update this post with additional multimedia from Muschamp’s day in Bristol as it is released by the Worldwide Leader.
