Former NCAA Exec Shaheen To Appear On ESPN To Explain Tourney Selection Process
Published March 14, 2013
INSIGHT INTO THE PROCESS: Shaheen said, "When I was approached about this, I did pause for a minute. The more I thought about it, the more I thought of the opportunity to continue giving insight of the process, the dynamics of the room and I hope this elicits discussion and explain what they are doing as part of the process. It won’t have to do as much with the debate of specific teams." ESPN Senior VP & Exec Producer Mark Gross said of Shaheen, "He has seen so much and he can give us a sense of context, a sense of the time and space of the moment. We will use Greg all around on our shows, games and halftimes. As we get closer to the selection show, there will be a short window for the fans where they will hear explanations they haven’t before” (AP, 3/12).
