Page Background


The Sun Devil Athletics media relations staff understands the

importance of assisting the media in providing coverage of the

institution, its athletics programs, administrators, coaches and

student-athletes. We pride ourselves in being able to disseminate

information as widely, uniformly and fairly as possible using

normally accepted media standards. To this end, the best attempt

will be made to fill reasonable requests by recognized media outlets.

Members of the media are encouraged to work with the Sun Devil

Football media relations staff to assist in that endeavor. It is not

permissible for media members to contact any athletics department

administrator, associate, coach or student-athlete directly without

working through the media relations department.


Due to the nature of Arizona State game dates this season,

practices schedules each week will vary dependent upon that

week’s game. The ASU media relations office will provide a practice

schedule prior to each game week for the media. Media members

may observe and shoot the the team stretch period as well as

periods A, B and C at the beginning of practice as long as the

footage does not include play signals. Viewing periods are always

subject to the discretion of the Sun Devil Football coaching staff

and may change suddenly. Following that open viewing period,

the members of the media will be escorted out of the facility and

reconvene near the end of the practice period at southeast entrance

of Sun Devil Stadium for post-practice interviews. Under no

circumstances will Periscope technology be permitted.


Interviews are conducted at the end of each practice. Due to high

demand, several players and members of the coaching staff might

only be available on a limited basis each week. A full availability

schedule will be provided to the media each week.

All other interviews must be be arranged through the Media

Relations office. Under no circumstances are members of the media

allowed to contact a student-athlete or member of the coaching

staff without first contacting a member of the Media Relations

staff. All coaches and student-athletes have been encouraged to

check in with the media relations staff and not indulge any interview

requests that have not been arranged through the proper channels.

Following home contests, Arizona State will bring several student-

athletes to the Dutson Theater for a post-game press conference.

Head Coach Todd Graham will follow the student-athletes.

Any members who wish to contact a student-athlete or coach

outside of the aforementioned interview periods should contact

Jeremy Hawkes (480-965-9544 or

arrange a time outside of practice or postgame interviews.
