Last weekend, Scott Drew and the Baylor Bears came up just short of a historic 25-point comeback against the North Carolina Tarheels. Ultimately, the Bears lost 93-86 in OT, and their dreams of repeating as national champions came to an end.
Now, instead of a date with four-seed UCLA in the Sweet 16, Scott Drew is preparing for a role as a guest analyst for the Atlanta studio coverage of the Sweet 16 games on Thursday and Friday. Broadcasters made the announcement on Thursday afternoon.
“CBS Sports and Turner Sports have added Baylor University Head Coach Scott Drew as a guest studio analyst for Regional Semifinal coverage of the 2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship airing across TBS and CBS. Drew will join the Atlanta studio team with host Ernie Johnson and analysts Candace Parker, Seth Davis, and Rex Chapman.
“Drew led the Baylor men’s basketball team to their first National Championship in school history last year. Over the past 15 seasons, Drew has led Baylor to 10 NCAA Tournament appearances, five Sweet 16 berths, three trips to the Elite Eight, the 2021 National Championship, the program’s first No. 1 national ranking in 2017, a Big 12 Conference-record 23-game winning streak in 2019-20, a five-week streak at No. 1 in 2020, and an entire season ranked in the nation’s top-3 in 2021. In 20 seasons coaching in Division I, Drew has posted a 417-233 record, going 397-222 at Baylor (2003-current) and 20-11 at Valparaiso (2002-03).“
The highly-decorated coach has yet to have an analyst role yet, but does have a bit of on-air experience as he appeared on The Steam Room video podcast with Charles Barkley.
