University of Delaware Athletics Media Interview Policy:
Any and all media requests for information and/or interviews are to be directed through the UD Athletics Media Relations Office first and then arrangements will be made as appropriate. Exceptions to this policy would include pre-season media day events and post-game press conferences (either home or away). Should a member of the UD Athletics Media Relations staff not be present onsite at an athletic event to make arrangements, interview requests for student-athletes should be made through a member of the coaching staff (or the sport administrator on duty). Furthermore, the University of Delaware Athletics Media Relations Staff will not provide home or cell phone numbers.
The Athletic Director, or his designee when applicable, is the only individual with authority to speak on behalf of the department to members of the media with the exception of approved interviews and media events or press conferences as noted above.
