This week I’ll be talking with the always inspiring Yogi Roth. Yogi is a friend. A mentor. A storyteller above all. When we collaborate, I am better because of it.

So who exactly is, Yogi?

Yogi Roth is a storyteller: seeking and uncovering the humanity in sports around the globe. A Pac-12 Networks college football analyst, Award-Winning Filmmaker, Scholar, New York Times Best-Selling Author, accomplished Coach, Motivational Speaker, Media Personality, Host and World-Traveler. Yogi began his storytelling career after coaching football at USC, co-authoring the New York Times best-seller Win Forever with Pete Carroll.

As a media personality, Yogi has been a host/college football analyst for ESPN, Fox and the Pac-12 Network. In 2017, he co-hosted the podcast Season of Sam with current NFL quarterback Sam Darnold. Yogi is the host of a new show titled THE IT FACTORY: Pac-12 Football with Yogi Roth that can be seen on the Pac-12 Networks or listened to on all podcast platforms. He has also hosted the Elite 11 for the last thirteen years.
