Five of ESPN's college football analysts are getting extensions.
College football season is less than a month away, and Friday, ESPN announced extensions for five of its analysts.
Dusty Dvoracek, Rod Gilmore, Brock Huard, Tom Luginbill and Greg McElroy all signed new contracts ahead of the season.
Here's what ESPN had to say about each analyst:
- Dvoracek, who joined ESPN in 2016, primarily called games on ESPNU last season. The former Oklahoma Sooner was a two-time Big 12 champion, and also served as a team captain.
- Gilmore continues to be a notable voice on ESPN after more than two decades with the network. Gilmore will remain in his role as a game analyst for ESPN/ABC Saturday telecasts, as well as a contributor to other ESPN platforms.
- Huard enters his 10th season with ESPN and continues to call games on ABC and ESPN.
- Luginbill has provided in-depth analysis for both college and high school football, and serves as a national recruiting analyst for ESPN. Working on ESPN/ABC college football Saturdays, he will continue to work as a field analyst. He has been a staple in ESPNU’s Signing Day Special for the last 12 years.
- Last season, McElroy moved to a weekly regular-season ESPN/ABC Saturday game assignment, and will continue as a game analyst this season. As announced earlier this month, he and fellow analyst Marcus Spears will have a weekly football talk show titled Thinking Out Loud this season on SEC Network, airing Mondays at 7 p.m. ET. The former Alabama quarterback will also have a presence on SEC Now and other news and information shows across ESPN platforms.
College football season is set to kick off on August 26.
