Stanford head coach David Shaw was understandably thrilled when his team defeated Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl on Sunday, but he didn’t need to take it out on ESPN reporter Heather Cox. By that, I mean Shaw could have simply taken a few minutes for an interview. Typically the network that hosted the game is given that luxury, but Shaw wanted nothing to do with it.
As you can see from the video above, Shaw was in a hurry to get to the trophy presentation. In his defense, it appeared he was being rushed along. Cox was obviously unhappy about it, as evidenced by the audio you heard of her saying, “Are you kidding?”
Shaw conducted the interview later, but the awkward exchange was entertaining. Cox clearly isn’t accustomed to that happening. Had she used the Holly Rowe approach to getting an interview, the Stanford coach and his cronies probably would have known she meant business.Google+
