ESPN is changing up its college football coverage.

ESPN college football coverage is getting a makeover, as the company will add several new personalities to its coverage on ABC, ESPN and ESPN2.

The new commentators include former LSU standout DL Booger McFarland, former Florida QB Jesse Palmer and former Oregon head coach Chip Kelly as analysts, per an ESPN release.

“The personalities and college football experience in each of the three studios will provide the viewers the perfect dose of entertainment, perspective and insight,” said ESPN senior coordinating producer Lee Fitting, per ESPN. “Each studio will provide viewers something a little bit different, which is the perfect set up as fans watch a variety of games and networks each Saturday.”

According to ESPN, McFarland will join Mack Brown on ABC, Palmer will anchor the ESPN studio on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and Kelly will join the studio team on Saturdays. Kelly will also be featured on SportsCenter on Fridays and Saturdays.
