ESPN has announced some big plays for its upcoming season of college football broadcasts.
Officials with the worldwide leader in sports have announced that play-by-play commentator Dave Pasch and analyst Bob Wischusen will be back in the booth this season for ESPN and ABC’s college football broadcasts. The pair re-signed during the off-season and will be in the booth for the foreseeable future. New to the team this season are analyst Greg McElroy and reporter Allison Williams. McElroy will join Pasch and field analyst Tom Luginbill for the networks’ broadcasts while Williams will join Wischusen and Brock Huard. The exact details of Pasch and Wischusen’s new extensions were not announced nor were those of McElroy and Williams.
Lee Fitting, ESPN Senior Coordinating Producer discussed the new broadcast teams in a statement released to the press. “The quality and depth of our on-air lineup continues to be one of the strengths of our college football coverage,” Fitting said. “Dave and Bob will again be front and center on high impact games in key ESPN and ABC timeslots for us. We look forward to seeing Greg and Allison in their new roles.”
Pasch originally joined ESPN in 2003 and has served as play-by-play commentator for college football, men’s and women’s basketball, the NBA, the WNBA, and the Little League World Series.
