BYU is known for its rich athletic history and tradition due in part to the overwhelming amount of media attention it has received over the years and now, also because of the robust social and digital media tools that BYU Athletics as well as individual student-athletes, coaches and staff can utilize.

The BYU Athletic Communications staff works closely with student-athletes and coaches in servicing media requests and building their individual brands. The office diligently works to provide the latest releases, notes, quotes and statistics to the media. All information can be found online at byucougars.com.

The following is general information for members of the media. Policies may vary from sport to sport. Please refer to sport-specific pages for the most detailed information.

Interviews
Player and coaches interviews must be scheduled through the Athletic Communications office at (801) 422-8948. Interview requests must be made 24 hours in advance, unless it is breaking news. Telephone interviews must be arranged through the Athletic Communications office.

Media Services
A weekly release will be issued via e-mail and will be available at byucougars.com. Notes, season statistics, rosters, programs and media guides will be provided to working media prior to each home competition.

Official statistics will be made available after each game and upon completion of the game/match. Coaches and student-athletes will be available after the competition for interviews and quotes. Football, men's basketball, women's basketball and women's volleyball will have a postgame media availability available to all working media.

Media Work Room
Athletic Communications seeks to accommodate media members in many different aspects, including the working environment. Media work rooms are available in various BYU facilities. A pressroom just off the playing floor at the Marriott Center, the press box at Miller Park and the Athletic Communications office, located at 331 Student Athlete Building, all serve as a pressroom for working media.
