Holgorsen to Appear on ESPN Special
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia University football coach Dana Holgorsen will appear today on ESPN’s annual mid-summer college football coaches’ “car wash” – in which guests appear across multiple programs and platforms over one day.
Holgorsen will join other college football coaches at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn., headquarters from July 21-31. Last summer, ESPN hosted 50 coaches from July 22-August 1.
“The college football car wash has grown in scope and interest from the conferences, teams and fans every year and will feature an extensive lineup of 63 coaches from five conferences over nine days this summer,” says ESPN spokesperson Michael Humes. “We are excited about the increasing interest, expanding participation and look forward to having the Big 12 schools on campus this this year.”
The schedules for the 63 coaches -- from teams in the Southeastern Conference (July 21-22), Big 12 Conference (July 23-24), Pac-12 (July 25), Atlantic Coast Conference (July 28-29) and Big Ten Conference (July 30-31) – will include a mixture of interviews with more than 25 different shows and writers across ESPN’s television, radio and digital media platforms.
