Gailey Featured on Fox Sports Net's Southern Sports Report

July 12, 2002

ATLANTA– – Georgia Tech first-year head football coach Chan Gailey’s in-depth conversation with anchor/reporter Paul Crane airs on Fox Sports Net’s SOUTHERN SPORTS REPORT, Sunday, July 14 at 10 p.m. EDT.

Fox Sports Net South also announced its schedule for the airing of COLLEGE FLASH CLASSICS, which includes three Georgia Tech games.

After spending nearly 14 years coaching in pro football, Gailey discusses returning to Georgia–his home state–to coach at the collegiate level. Gailey shares his thoughts about making the transition from being head coach of the Dallas Cowboys and most recently offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins, to leading an ACC team with a long tradition of success.

Noting that he was on the sideline during the Yellow Jackets’ 2002 spring game when the band struck up a number, Gailey said, “Do you know how long it’s been since I’ve been on a field with the band playing? It gave me goose bumps.”

Gailey talks about assembling a virtually new coaching staff at Tech. He also touches on aspects of his personal coaching agenda, including building an ACC title contender and beating Georgia.

“I know what we have to do. We need to win the ACC and beat Georgia, and then everything will be okay . . . Why spend all summer working out and then going through two-a-days, if you’re not going to try to win the championship?”

COLLEGE FLASH CLASSICS RETURN

As college football fans across the South anxiously await the season-opening kickoffs for their favorite teams, Fox Sports Net again delivers – beginning July 13 – condensed versions of classic Atlantic Coast Conference and Southeastern Conference games, telecast by Jefferson Pilot Sports during the past two decades.

Three Georgia Tech games are included in this summer’s schedule: the Yellow Jackets’ 45-42 victory over Clemson in 1999, the 27-25 win over North Carolina in 1995 and Tech’s 1991 game against Georgia.

These 20, one-hour COLLEGE FLASH CLASSICS shows are highlighted with game- and personally-related trivia from the lives of the players, presented in Fox Sports Net’s unique visual style. The trivia has been updated from last summer’s debut airing of these classic matchups.

Veteran FSN announcer Bob Rathbun escorts viewers through the ACC games, while the network’s SEC voice, Dave Neal, narrates those clashes. Rathbun is FSN’s MLB Atlanta Braves, NBA Atlanta Hawks and college football play-by-play voice; Neal is host of the network’s live, weekly SEC-TV program, and he calls play-by-play for FSN’s SEC basketball and baseball telecasts.
