Paul has been married for over 20 years to a woman whose only complaint was that he did not reveal that ESPN is a 24 hour sports network! He has three active teenagers who share his commitment and dedication to sports whether it is cheering on his beloved Patriots and Celtics or competing in football, basketball, lacrosse, volleyball, equestrian or golf. Paul spent many years coaching basketball and football at the youth level and now mostly supports from the sidelines, although he has been known to lead NBA-quality basketball drills in his driveway.
