|MEDIA INTERVIEW POLICY|
Immediately after a 10 minute cooling-off period (i.e., 10 minutes after a competing team or individual completes a match), an interview area will open to all certified members of the news media. Any coach and student-athletes requested by the media will be available for interviews. If a team or individual is participating in an awards ceremony, the cooling-off period will begin immediately after the presentation.
Regardless of regular season radio or television contract(s), the coach is obligated to the entire covering media during the championship and must report to the interview room immediately after the 10-minute cooling-off period. The coach cannot delay a post-competition interview with the covering media to conduct a program for a single newspaper, radio, or television reporter unless requested to remain for a short interview (not to exceed four minutes) by the television entity that has been granted television rights by NCAA Productions.
Coaches cannot make themselves available to selected media representatives before the conclusion of the 10-minute cooling-off period ends, and make themselves available to all media representatives staffing the championships.
