ESPN has signed Desmond Howard to a multiyear extension.
Longtime college football analyst Desmond Howard has re-upped with ESPN on a multiyear contract.
ESPN announced the news via press release. Howard has been with the network since 2005.
“I am both excited and reflective as I embark upon my 13th season with ESPN,” said Howard. “When I transitioned from playing the game to talking about it for a living, I could not have landed on a better team than College GameDay, where I’ve been fortunate to learn from and grow with some of the very best in this industry.
Likewise, I consider myself lucky to be able to travel the country throughout the fall and be surrounded by so many die-hard college football fans who gather together to help us create a uniquely electric atmosphere every Saturday morning… Is it August yet?”
Kirk Herbstreit isn't going anywhere, and Lee Corso has reportedly signed a two-year deal. Now, Howard is staying in the fold.
It looks like the Worldwide Leader is trying to keep its College GameDay team intact.
