BEING P.J. Fleck: Preview ESPN series on Minnesota’s fiery new head coach

ESPNU will air a four-part series chronicling new University of Minnesota head football coach P.J. Fleck, one of college football’s youngest head coaches, as he prepares for his first season with the Gophers.

The documentary-style, multi-episode program follows the day-to-day life of Fleck who burst on the national scene in 2016 as he led Western Michigan to an undefeated regular season, the school’s first since 1941, and berth in the New Year’s Six where his Broncos played Wisconsin in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.

The first episode of BEING P.J. Fleck airs on ESPNU Wednesday, Aug. 2, at 9 p.m. ET, with a new episode airing each of the following three Wednesdays (Aug. 9, 16, 23). All episodes will be available on demand via your favorite ESPN streaming devices.

“To no surprise, P.J. is all heart, all the time, no matter what he is doing, no matter what time of day,” said co-executive producer Bo Mattingly. “Throughout the filming, which continues for a few more weeks, we capture his personality, passion and drive with his family, his team and others he interacts with in various situations.”
