Brock Huard has been a college football analyst for ESPN for a dozen years, but he’s locked in a new gig with a different network.
The New York Post first reported that Huard was leaving ESPN to work in a similar capacity at FOX. Huard then confirmed the move himself during his radio show in Seattle.
“I’m leaving there and getting an opportunity, a huge opportunity, and as big of a bummer as it is leaving ESPN, it’s as huge of a gift and an opportunity to join Fox on their college football broadcasts and join Joe Davis, who I worked with way back when on one of his first games when he filled in for Mark Jones,” Huard said, according to Awful Announcing. “And I knew then this dude is talented, really good, they’ve got an incredible crew.”
Huard will be part of FOX’s No. 2 crew for college football, behind Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt, who spend most of their time covering the B1G and Big 12. It’s likely that Huard’s crew will spend a good chunk of their coverage in Pac-12 country.
Huard will be replacing Brady Quinn as an analyst, after Quinn was reassigned to FOX’s college football pre-game show for the fall.
