Coach Byrd Interviewed on ESPN Radio

Belmont men’s basketball Head Coach Rick Byrd was a guest Friday morning on ESPN Radio’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd.” Aside from discussing the Final Four and the accomplishments of the Belmont Basketball program, Byrd offered a good-natured response to comments from Cowherd during his Wed., Apr. 1 program. In discussing the ability of University of Connecticut women’s basketball All-American Maya Moore, Cowherd suggested Moore had the talent to compete for an NCAA Division-I men’s basketball program – paraphrasing – perhaps not at Duke but maybe at Belmont. The popular radio program is broadcast in 750 stations nationwide, including the top 100 markets. Click here to listen to the interview.
