BERKELEY, California, January 25. WHILE Missy Franklin certainly earned some major attention with four event wins in a 229-69 victory over Arizona State last night, fellow Golden Bear Natalie Coughlin also claimed some of the spotlight in the broadcast booth with the Pacific 12 Network.

Coughlin, in her second year broadcasting events for the Pac 12 Network, has certainly been enjoying herself in this new role. Even though she's still training and competing full-time in the professional swimming circuit, Coughlin has even spent some time in the booth with Rowdy Gaines at Arena Grand Prix events to continue to get more comfortable in this arena.

With the sport continuing to grow in terms of television coverage, there's no doubt there will be more jobs opening up for commentators, and someone like Coughlin is positioning herself to move into those roles in a more full-time capacity whenever she does decide to call it a career in competitive swimming.
