The Roost Podcast mixes up the format this week to debrief Tommy McClelland’s introductory press conference. Hear from the Owls’ new AD himself.
New athletic director Tommy McClelland was introduced this week and he had a lot to say beyond the podium. In addition to his more formal remarks — you can read those here and check out the full session, too — he had additional conversations with The Roost and other members of the media, covering a wide range of topics. Rather than give you rehashed summaries, here are his words directly with some additional commentary of our own.
You can find previous episodes on the podcast page. For now, give a listen to Episode 155.
