Nebraska head coaches Kerry McDermott and Gary Pepin are featured guests on Tuesday night’s Talk to the Director of Athletics Radio Show, which airs live from the Haymarket’s IMG studio tonight from 7 – 8 p.m. Host Greg Sharpe will interview Nebraska Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst in the first two segments of his monthly show.

McDermott, the NU men’s head tennis coach for 30 years, will share segment 3 with Brandon Videtich, a sixth-year senior student-athlete from Lincoln East. An Academic All-Big Ten selection, Videtich has persevered through an injury-plagued career to become a leader for the Husker tennis team.

Pepin, a Hall-of-Famer and the all-time winningest track and field coach in the history of the former Big 12 and Big Eight Conferences, is in his 34th season at the helm of the Husker men’s and women’s track and field teams. Joining Pepin on Tuesday night’s segment 4 of the Talk to the Director of Athletics Show is Mara Weekes, a senior sprinter from Bridgetown, Barbados. Weekes earned 2012 All-America recognition for her role in the NCAA Indoor Distance Medley Relay.
