Craig Fouhy is Sports Director for ABC15.
Craig gives Valley viewers his unique coach’s perspective on the world of sports. You can catch Craig on the Valley’s highly rated Sunday night sports show, ABC15 Sports Sunday, at 10:35pm, and weekdays during ABC15 News at 5, 6 and 10pm.
Known for his honesty, Fouhy is not afraid to give his opinion during his popular “Fouhy on Sports,” and “In The Ring” segments. He enjoys spotlighting the youngest sports athletes in “Fouhy’s Small Star segments within his sportscasts. In fact, Fouhy’s Small Stars is one of our most popular and longest running segments here at ABC 15.
As part of his commitment to community, Craig started a segment call “Fridays with Fouhy.” He ventures out into the community every Friday afternoon in the fall and spring and spotlights an inexpensive family event going on that weekend.
Craig graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington majoring in Education to go along with three minors. He spent 18 years coaching College and High school football as both a head coach and assistant coach. He was the running backs coach at the University of Montana and the head coach at North Park College.
Some of Craig’s best football memories are when he took over at North Park College as the head football coach and ran the “spread, no huddle offense”. Considering that is one of the hottest offenses in college football today, and the fact that he was running it back in the 1980’s, says something about his innovation as a football coach.
He joined ABC15 in 1998 adding a non-traditional element based on his experience as both a coach and a player.
In addition to television and coaching, Craig has also been a play by play announcer and color commentator for college football television and radio and a public address announcer for several professional, college and high school sports teams.
When he is not working, Craig loves to hang out with his family and enjoy Arizona. He and his wife Kimb live in the East Valley and enjoy getting involved with the community.
