Jordan Whitley has covered college football for Comcast Sports Net South and Atlanta area sports for years. Currently, she is a college football insider for Comcast Sports Net Northwest. She joined Chad Wednesday on The Morning Sports Page to talk about her work at the Pac-12 Media Days.As is often the case, Oregon coach Chip Kelly stole most of the show on day one. But this time, it wasn’t his quick wit nor his brash personality that drew the headlines. Yesterday, Kelly put a twist on the Pac-12 Media coverage by getting behind the mic and in front of the camera to conduct an interview with Oregon State defensive back Jordan Poyer. Whitley insists that the “interview” was Kelly’s idea and she just let him run with it.
Whitley also talked about her experience covering the SEC and how it compares to covering the Pac-12. She suggests that it’s somewhat of a relief to cover the new conference. In the SEC, coaches never share secrets or talk to one another. In the Pac-12, coaches may be enemies on the field, but off the field, many of the coaches are good friends.
Take a listen as Whitley also talks about the work she has
planned for Oregon football this upcoming season. She implies that if you enjoyed the Chip Kelly interview with
Jordan Poyer, you’ll love what she and CSNNW.com have in store for the rest of the season.
