    I'm guessing that Miami's Israel Gutierrez will be a serious candidate. I know he's turned down the NYT a couple times, but never for a NBA job...
  2. Izzy has used NYT leverage already to be an occasional Herald columnist. (Not that I blame him.) But I bet you're right ............. We could lose him.

    Quick question. How do you send electronic clips? What kind of format is the best presentation.

    I have no idea how I would even do this.

    Then you probably shouldn't apply for this job.

    OK, I'm sure I'll get lambasted for this, but what are the changes the Times would take a look at someone who has done a bang up job covering preps for the last 6-7 years? I've always felt like you learn more doing the nitty-gritty of being on a high school sideline than sitting in a press box. Well, whatever, I'm applying. What's the worst that happens? They can only say no if they have the chance to say yes.

  10. You'll never know unless you try. Send it.
  11. I heard that there was a writer, back in the day, who went from covering preps at the old Miami News directly to the Washington Post. Bill Brubaker, I think. Does that sound right to any of you old-timers? :)

    I'm not sure about his resume, but he is a special talent. Wrote sports features for the NY Daily News in the early 1980s, as I recall. He works news-side at The WashPost.
