Lee Corso agreed to a new multi-year deal with ESPN
Not so fast.
Lee Corso isn’t retiring just yet.
The longtime analyst and college football personality agreed to a new multi-year deal with ESPN, which means that he’ll still be a fixture on the ever-popular pregame show “College GameDay.”

Corso, 81, started at ESPN in 1987, and he began working on GameDay when the show launched. With a new deal in place, his mascot headgear tradition will enter its 22nd season.
The former Indiana coach has been a mainstay in college football for the better part of the last 30 years. He, Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, David Pollack and Desmond Howard (he signed a new deal Tuesday) will continue to serve as the program’s main personalities.
Corso is GameDay’s only remaining original member.
“I reflect on my 30 years at ESPN and continue to count my blessings each time I walk on the College GameDay set,” Corso said in a release. “The fans keep me energized, and being surrounded by such a talented and dynamic GameDay crew is the best medicine for this old coach.”
He’ll make his 300th headgear pick in Week 6 of the 2017 season. Perhaps he’ll pick another B1G team like he did for pick No. 1.
