In this episode, we take a deeper dive into some of the hot topics we discussed last month. As we’re entering month 11 of the pandemic, collegiate athletics departments are adjusting to the “new normal,” but the challenges are still present.
Joining Katie and Ken is Chris Iacoi, UCLA’s Senior Associate Athletic Director and Chief Financial Officer. They’ll be discussing the ongoing effects of COVID-19 on the west coast and how peer support has made a meaningful impact on navigating uncertain times. Chris also has a unique perspective on name, image, and likeness—since he’s located in the midst of Hollywood’s center stage, star power atmosphere.
