SAN FRANCISCO - Tonight, New UCLA Athletic Director Martin Jarmond joins hosts Ashley Adamson and Yogi Roth on a brand-new installment of “Pac-12 Playlist,” presented by New York Life, airing at 7 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. MT on Pac-12 Network. “Mental Health Week” also continues on tonight’s episode, with former Arizona Wildcat Channing Frye sharing his story.
Adamson and Roth chat with Jarmond about what the last month has been like and his excitement for coming to Westwood. Jarmond also shares his vision for Bruins athletics, the challenges facing student-athletes and how he aims to support them during these ever-changing times.
“First and foremost, I want them to know about my energy and passion for serving students, and that’s what we do,” said Jarmond. “I think you have to have passion in this business, you have to have juice and you have to go. We’re going to do things the right way, and integrity is very important to me. UCLA demands that and I expect that from all of our staff and coaches. We’re going to do things the right way and we’re not going to take shortcuts. That’s just who I am and who we are. Finally, I would say, we're going to win. I want to win, I’m very competitive, and I’m driven. Everything in sports has a scoreboard, and you best believe we have to pay attention to that scoreboard. So I want them to know I’m passionate, I’m energetic, I’m hungry, and we’re going to win and we’re going to do it the right way.”

Continuing “Mental Health Week” on Pac-12 Networks, Adamson and Roth also sit down with Frye to talk about why he decided to open up about his internal battle following the death of his parents, and the importance of using his platform to help others. Frye also shares what got him through tough times, and offers advice to student-athletes who may be navigating their own difficulties.
Fans can also get to know Jarmond on a bonus episode of the “Pac-12 Perspective” podcast, presented by Nike, available now wherever fans get their podcasts. Yesterday's installment of the podcast featured former Colorado football player Sean Tufts, who talks about his work for ‘Buffs4Life,’ which provides financial and mental health support services to current and former CU Boulder student-athletes and coaches in their times of need. Today, former Oregon linebacker Derrick Malone Jr. discusses his own battle with mental health and the importance of athletes raising awareness for others. Frye’s extended interview, in which he goes into further detail about his personal story and also gives his two cents on ‘The Last Dance,’ is available tomorrow.
