Mulvihill leads Fox Sports’ overall college strategy, which includes the head-turning move to shift the network’s top college game into the noon time slot, a decision two years in the making. He works closely with Crocker, who manages the day-to-day aspects of Fox’s college relationships. Under Mulvihill’s guidance, Crocker collaborates with conference partners on programming and scheduling. A different aspect of Fox’s college business is run by Sherman, the veteran chief of sales at HTS who in recent years also picked up oversight of Fox Sports College Properties. This unit of Fox holds the rights at blue-chip schools Auburn, Michigan State and Southern Cal, among others. McGillicuddy presides at BTN, moving into that role at the start of the year. Most recently, the 20-year media veteran moved all of the Big Ten’s content on the network over to the Fox Sports app in an effort to streamline the viewing experience.
