Hawley: “Do you think you’re in jeopardy of losing your job?”

Perkins: “I hope not. Would you like that to happen?”

Hawley: “I’m not here to answer the questions.”

↵

Perkins: “Why would you ask that? So let me ask you; do you think I should do that? What do you think?”

Perkins was very uncomfortable during the entire interview. Hawley was insistent — but not inappropriate.

So how did the interview end?

“Lew Perkins said if we aired his interview he would never talk to our news department again. You can watch the entire interview with Lew Perkins and tell us what you think at nbcactionnews.com under sports.”
