“NFL BROADCAST BOOT CAMP” JUNE 16-19

Top NFL Producers & Directors to Instruct Players

CBS’ James Brown to Serve as Host Joined ByRon Jaworski, Dick Vermeil, Marshall Faulk, Brian Baldinger & Solomon Wilcots

Twenty current and former NFL players including NNAMDI ASOMUGHA, CHESTER PITTS and DARREN SHARPER, will take part in the annual NFL Broadcast Boot Camp at NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, it was announced today.

The program, which runs from June 16-19, is directed by the NFL Broadcasting Department and covers a wide range of topics with instructors from each of the NFL’s broadcasting partners – CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, NFL Network, Sirius Satellite Radio, Westwood One Radio, plus local radio and TV. It will include hands-on work in areas such as tape study, editing, show preparation, radio production, control room operation, studio preparation, production meetings, field reporting and game preparation. Each player will tape segments as a studio and game analyst and take part in a networking session with television executives. Each player also will serve as a live radio host on Sirius NFL Radio, a new feature added this year.

From last year’s group of 20 players at the inaugural Broadcast Boot Camp, 12 attendees have already earned broadcasting jobs as a result of their participation in the program.

“We continue to look for ways to help players develop their skills for post-NFL careers. Many of last year’s participants used this program as a career springboard and three have returned (IKE REESE, ROSS TUCKER and ROLAND WILLIAMS) to help this year’s class,” said NFL Vice President of Player and Employee Development MICHAEL HAYNES. “The support of the NFL’s broadcast partners will provide our players with a foundation for understanding the sports broadcasting business.”

“We are pleased that many of our players continually strive to achieve excellence off the field. It is imperative that we continue to create these type of quality programs that will allow players to experience second careers that they are proud of and passionate about,” said STACY ROBINSON, director of player development for the NFL Players Association.

The NFL Broadcast Boot Camp is part of an ongoing NFL-NFLPA initiative to assist players in preparing for their post-playing careers. Over the past four years, more than 360 players have participated in the NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program. In addition, each offseason more than 100 NFL players enroll in college courses as they work towards Master’s or Bachelor’s degrees while more than 130 others pursue career development opportunities.

Enrollment criteria for the Broadcast Bootcamp include previous participation in NFL Player Development programs, prior media experience, essays, and NFL playing experience.

Former NBA Player “Mark Jackson” Possbile Candidate for New York Knicks Coach

Posted by TSUE on April 21, 2008

Mark Jackson, the former Knicks point guard, hinted that he might like to coach the Knicks, and got the approval of former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. Donnie Walsh, the new Knicks president, fired Isiah Thomas as coach on Friday and confirmed that Jackson was a candidate for the job. Walsh said it would take “a special person” to overcome a lack of coaching experience. But he has hired rookies in the past, including Thomas and Larry Bird in Indiana.

Mark Jackson — born in Brooklyn, a star point guard at St. John’s and a Knick for five seasons has obvious appeal in New York. The Knicks drafted Jackson with the 18th pick in 1987, and he teamed with Patrick Ewing to lead them into the playoffs the next five years. Jackson retired in 2004 with the second-most assists in N.B.A. history.  Jackson was often lauded as an intelligent player who served as a virtual coach on the court.  Former NBA standout Mark Jackson is also a game and studio analyst for ABC broadcasts of the NBA.  Jackson serves as a studio analyst for the NBA Sunday Countdown pre-game show on ABC with host Dan Patrick and analyst Michael Wilbon from the site of the ABC NBA Sunday game broadcast each week.  Jackson provides analysis during the game, paired courtside with ESPN and ABC lead play-by-play commentator Mike Breen.
