Tim Coombs - Crisis Communication in Sport

As part of 'Communication Matters', a quarterly series hosted by the School of Communication and Culture, we invited Dr. Timothy Coombs to present on sports crisis communication and how to "save face" in light of a public scandal.


Dr. Coombs, a professor in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University, researches in the area of crisis communication. He has authored two books in crisis communication, Ongoing Crisis Communication and Code Red in the Boardroom, as well as being co-editor of the Handbook of Crisis Communication, the forthcoming Reputation Challenges in Sport: Theory and Practice, and numerous book chapters on the topic.
