First-year head coach will also speak at Big Brothers Big Sisters Breakfast on Nov. 4
A preview of the 2011-12 Eastern Washington University men’s basketball season will be featured on this Monday’s (Oct. 31) Eagle Coaches Show at 6 p.m. Pacific time at the Q Sports Bar and Restaurant at Northern Quest Casino and Resort.
First-year Eagle head coach Jim Hayford will join host Dennis Patchin for the hour-long show, and fans are welcome to come watch the show live and order menu items from the restaurant. The show airs live on 700-AM ESPN “The Ticket” and via the internet at www.espnnorthwest.com, with an iPhone application also available (search for “Spokane Radio” and download the free app).
Head football coach Beau Baldwin will return to the show on Nov. 7, following a bye in his team’s schedule on Nov. 5. Baldwin, along with hosts Larry Weir and Paul Sorensen, will be on the show every Monday after that until the football season ends. Eagle basketball with Hayford and Patchin will then be featured, with no shows aired on Dec. 19, Dec. 26 and Jan. 16. Also, there will be no live show at Northern Quest on Dec. 12, but the show will originate from the Los Angeles area, as the Eagles play games versus Cal State Fullerton (Dec. 11) and UCLA (Dec. 14).
