ESPN Announces New College Football Broadcasters For This Season

ESPN Analyst Names Sleeper Team In The SEC In 2018

ESPN announced this afternoon a couple of new additions to their college football broadcasting team for the 2016 season. 

The moves: 

  • Dave Flemming will call Thursday night games. 
  • Adam Amin will call Friday night games. 
  • Laura Rutledge is the new Thursday night sideline reporter. 
  • David Pollack has re-signed with ESPN, will continue his work on College GameDay and will have a more prominent in-studio role. 

From ESPN:

“The new opportunities for Dave, Adam and Laura prove, once again, the quality of our on-air lineup and the growth opportunities that exist at ESPN, while Molly’s addition adds another high-caliber reporter and host to our roster as we enter a new season,” senior coordinating producer Lee Fitting said. “Thursday and Friday night telecasts are an integral part of our college football coverage and we look forward to these two new commentating teams working these primetime games each week.”


“David’s analysis, insights and, most importantly, his opinions have elevated him to a top college football analyst,” said Fitting. “Having him on our studio programming, nearly on a daily basis throughout the season, maximizes his strengths and makes ESPN’s college football coverage better.”

Earlier today, ESPN announced that Molly McGrath, previously with Fox Sports, was returning to the network. She'll work Friday night games and have a role on College Football Live.
