"Moon-dog" guest hosts local radio show

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - You could call it "Moon-dog on the Mic". University of Richmond head basketball coach Chris Mooney has not been called that in a long time, but it seems to fit for a sport talk radio host.

Mooney jumped to the other side of the microphone Tuesday afternoon to guest host the "Hardly Workin' with Greg Burton" show on the ESPN Radio, 950 AM from 3pm to 6pm.

Mooney had plenty of college basketball to talk about, including what bothers him the most about the game he coaches (they don't call enough fouls) and how much the shot clock and the three point line have helped the game.

But he also weighed in on other sports topics, including his beloved Philadelphia Phillies.  Mooney admitted afterwards that he didn't feel totally comfortable talking about sports other than college basketball, but he certainly enjoyed the experience of being on the other side of the mic.
