Sandy Grossman, Maestro of N.F.L. on TV, Dies at 78
...
Sandy Grossman, who aspired to be a broadcaster but instead became an Emmy-winning director of N.F.L. games - most prominently those called by John Madden and Pat Summerall - died on Wednesday at his home in Boca Raton, Fla.
...
Mr. Grossman, who won eight Emmys, directed broadcasts of 10 Super Bowls, 18 N.B.A. finals, 5 Stanley Cup finals and Olympic hockey.
He orchestrated live football broadcasts from a production truck loaded with television monitors, creating a cohesive three-hour show from a jigsaw puzzle of imagery provided by myriad camera angles and replays. The decision-making by Mr. Grossman and Bob Stenner, the producer, was rapid-fire and occasionally dizzying.
...
Mr. Grossman started working with Mr. Madden and Mr. Summerall on CBS in 1981 - a partnership that lasted 21 seasons, the last of them on Fox.
...
"Sandy became like a defensive coordinator, the way he looked at stuff," Mr. Madden said in an interview Thursday.
...
Sandy took the knowledge he got from the film and transferred it to the cameramen, who carried it over to the game."
...
Mr. Madden said that Mr. Grossman was the first director to widen the standard camera shot from the end zones to include the outside linebackers.
...
David Hill, a former chairman of Fox Sports, said, "Watch any N.F.L. game and you will see Sandy Grossman's legacy."
...
Sanford Morton Grossman was born on June 12, 1935, in Newark and graduated from Weequahic High School. He studied broadcasting at the University of Alabama. After calling football games for the campus radio station, he came to realize that his voice would not be his destiny.
"It was obvious that I wouldn't make it big as a broadcaster," he told The Palm Beach Post, in Florida, in 2011.
After graduating in 1957, he got a job as an usher at the Ed Sullivan Theater in Manhattan and eventually found work at CBS, first in public affairs at the local station, Channel 2, and then, in 1963, as a production assistant at CBS Sports. He was the lead director of N.B.A. broadcasts in the early 1970s before becoming the top N.F.L. director.
When CBS lost control of N.F.L. rights to Fox before the 1994 season, he and Mr. Stenner followed Mr. Madden and Mr. Summerall to the new network.
Besides his son Dean, Mr. Grossman is survived by his wife, Faithe; another son, Bobby; his daughters, Jodi Grossman Rose and Bari Grossman Rosenholtz; and eight grandchildren.
...
In 2012, after his retirement from Fox, Mr. Grossman was hired by the Elite Football League of India to give its television camera crews a crash course in covering the American sport. Although he was enthusiastic about the venture, he said, it was a significantly different experience for a man accustomed to a tightly knit group of football cognoscenti working together from Thursday to Sunday.
"There were some guys who couldn't follow the players," he said.
