SEC Network Announces Football Commentating Roster
The SEC Network, the 24/7 multiplatform network devoted to the Southeastern Conference and operated by ESPN, has finalized its 2014 football commentating line-up and added several names in the process. Heisman winning quarterback Andre Ware and former Georgia lineman Matt Stinchcomb have both signed multi-year agreements to join the network as College Football analysts when it launches August 14, 2014. Tony Barnhart, Tom Hart, Kaylee Hartung and Dave Neal have also been added to the roster.
Ware and Stinchcomb join Jesse Palmer, Greg McElroy, Booger McFarland, Marcus Spears and Tim Tebow to complete an analyst pool that boasts:
· 2 Heisman Trophy Winners
· 6 All-American First Team Awards
· 8 All-SEC First Team Awards
· 4 National Championships
· 6 SEC Championships
· 5 NFL First Round Picks
· 2 Super Bowl Rings
In addition to their on-the-field success, Ware has covered College Football at ESPN for the last 10 years and served as an SEC game analyst for the last five and Stinchcomb has provided studio coverage for both SEC Syndicated football games and ESPNU since 2009.
Game Commentating Assignments
It was previously announced that sportscasting legend Brent Musburger will join analyst Palmer and sideline reporter Maria Taylor every Saturday as play-by-play on one of three SEC Network games. ESPN's Neal and Hart will round out the remaining play-by-play roles. Neal is a two-time Emmy winner and long-time voice of the SEC, calling SEC Syndicated football games alongside Ware for the last five years and covering the conference since the early 90s. Hart, a Missouri graduate, joined ESPN in 2012 as a college sports commentator with a wide breadth of game commentating experience.
