On this massive edition of the Black & Gold Banneret Podcast, we have two interviews for the price of one!

We start with Jeff and Eric interviewing UCF Knights VP and Director of Athletics Terry Mohajir for the first time on this show. They talk with Terry about his background, Big 12 updates, and plenty of facilities news (including some hints on naming rights for the Bounce House), and Terry breaks some news himself about UCF Men’s Soccer’s future conference home.

Then UCF’s new head women’s basketball coach, Sytia Messer, joins Jeff and Kyle for the first time. She talks about her background coming to UCF, the identity she intends her team to have on the floor, and some updates on her staff hires and incoming transfer players.

Finally, Eric recaps UCF Softball clinching the AAC regular-season title, and we hear from head coach Cindy Ball-Malone. Bryson joins to recap baseball, golf, and tennis, and preview Track and Field in the AAC Championships. Finally, Jeff has a tribute to former UCF men’s hoops head coach Kirk Speraw, who announced his retirement from coaching.
