ESPN Producers Will Not Tip Analysts During NFL Draft; Lovie Smith's Debut Criticized
Published April 19, 2013
NO LOVE FOR LOVIE: In Chicago, David Haugh writes former Bears coach Lovie Smith on ESPN Thursday "provided indisputable evidence on 'SportsCenter' and 'NFL Live' that he belongs back on the sideline, not in the studio." Smith came off as "genuine but stiff, more like a folksier Eric Mangini." Smith became a "cliche the moment the red light went on Thursday and he embraced the media he showed so little respect for in nine seasons with the Bears, the latest hypocritical coach or player who decries the working press until he becomes a part of it" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 4/19).
