SEC Network Hires Former Georgia Quarterback David Greene To Host New Show "Film Room"

If the SEC Network has made one thing clear, it is that if you are a former conference quarterback, they will find a job for you. Florida greats Tim Tebow and Jesse Palmer, and former Alabama QB Greg McElroy already appear on the network, and now a recent Georgia signal caller is getting his own show.

David Greene, who spent five years in Athens threw for over 11,000 yards and 72 touchdowns for the Bulldogs from 2001-2004, will be the host of the new SEC Network program "Film Room." The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has more on Greene's new role:

“David’s many hours watching film and preparing as a quarterback make him a great fit for Film Room,” Stephanie Druley, ESPN senior vice president of college networks, said in a news release. ESPN operates the SEC Network, which launched last week.

Said Greene: “My goal is to bring a new layer of depth to fans on why teams are successful on the field and the mindset of a coach during a game.”

Greene bounced around NFL practice squads after being drafted in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks, but never made a major impact in the pros. He officially retired in 2009.
