According to NUSports.Com, Northwestern Head Football Coach Pat Fitzgerald is heading to Bristol, Ct to spend the day at ESPN.
ESPN is referring to the day as the Car Wash. He will begin his ESPN media blitz with an appearance on the Mike and Mike show with NU alumnus Mike Greenberg and co-host Mike Golic.
He will continue his day by recording a podcast with ESPN college football writer Ivan Maisel and College Football insiders Travis Haney and Brett McMurphy.
He will have another radio appearance on the “The Herd” with Colin Cowher at 11:15am CT. The chosen time is curious considering that the Herd only airs in Chicago from 9-10CT on ESPN Radio 1000.
He wil continue his day with afternoon appearances on Sportscenter at 12:40 CT, College Football Live at 1:20 CT and back on ESPN Radio at 2:15pm on the Coach and Company radio show. Coach and Company does not air in Chicago.
After he concludes with Coach and Company, Fitz will conduct and online chat with ESPN Bloggers Adam Rittenberg and Brian Bennett at 1:50CT.
All of the Big Ten Coaches are participating in the Car Wash. This comes a week after the Big Ten Media Kickoff Day and Luncheon
The Wildcats season kickoff at 9:30CT at California on August 31.
