All interviews with coaches, players and staff members MUST be coordinated through the athletic communications office. Please allow 24 hours notice for all interviews. Postgame interviews are coordinated following the event; please tell an AC staff member who you wish to interview and they will be brought back to the field/court following a cool down period.


Please contact the AC office 24 hours prior to the game you wish to cover in order to secure proper credentials and passes.


EMU does require that you obtain a sideline pass in order to shoot any athletic event held at the school. Please contact the AC office at least 24 hours in advance to reserve a sideline pass.
