Austin Peay Athletics Media Policies
Media wanting to interview Austin Peay State University student-athletes, coaches or staff must contact the sports information office, which will arrange the interview.
The best time to conduct interviews with student-athletes is before or after practice sessions, which vary by team, as do rules for interviewing at each team's practice – please check with the sports information office for more information about a specific sport.
Media that attend a practice session are asked to keep their distance from the action and not to talk to student-athletes or coaches while practice is occurring. A sports information office staff member will assist you in interviews at the pre-designated time. Team meetings before, during or after practice are private and not accessible to the media.
Interviews that cannot be conducted at that time will be arranged around the student-athlete or coach's schedule. At no time will a student-athlete's phone number or other contact information be give out and media are asked not to call, e-mail or contact players and coaches via phone, e-mail, through social networking website (i.e., Facebook, Twitter) or ask for their contact information.
It is requested that media give the sports information office enough advanced warning when they want to (a) arrange an interview or (b) attend a practice. Last minute interview requests cannot be guaranteed to be honored.
Post-game interviews following home contests are also handled through the sports information office. After a 10-minute cooling off period, coaches and requested student-athletes will be brought to the designated interview area for that sport. Locker rooms following contests are closed to the media.
The media relations office will do everything to respect the requests of the media and it is expected that the media respect the policies set forth by the sports information office.
