Danyelle Sargent has had her share of on air gaffe’s in her career. Danyelle Sargent thought that Bill Walsh was still alive when interviewing Mike Singletary on the Fox Sports Network.

“I heard that your mentor Bill Walsh was one of the first phone calls that you made when you found out that you had the job. What does it mean to you to be the head coach of the 49ers?”

Who spotted the issue?  Oh yeah Bill Walsh, the legendary coach, passed away in July of 2007.  She was informed through her ear piece of her mistake and the video never aired, but it was left available online and she now has some new fame to deal with.

Danyelle Sargent was a reporter for ESPN when she gained some Internet fame in 2006 when she was doing some highlights and during a clip you heard her say loudly “What the f*&k was that?” Since that incident she has moved on to FOX Sports and was covering the San Francisco 49ers game this weekend when she got a chance to interview new 49ers coach Mike Singletary.  She proceeded to ask him a question that went like above.

Sargent was hired in 2004, by the television network, ESPN, to work on their ESPNEWS channel. She also contributed to ESPN2’s Cold Pizza, now titled ESPN First Take.

Sargent was the product of minor controversy on March 9, 2006 when Sargent was co-anchoring a live broadcast of ESPNEWS and a series of technical difficulties occurred, leading ESPN to air a taped segment played.

What does it mean to you to be the head coach of the 49ers?””; the interview was abruptly halted when the reporter was informed by her producers that Walsh had in fact died on July 30, 2007.
