Report: ESPN adding to CFB broadcast crew
ESPN is adding more talent to its broadcast crews this college football season, according to a report.
Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported that former USC quarterback Mark Sanchez has decided to retire from the NFL and pursue a career in broadcasting. He’ll be joining the college football crew at ESPN.
Per Marchand, Sanchez will be one of the lead studio analysts for ABC’s college football coverage in 2019. He will join Kevin Negandhi and Jon Vilma.

Sanchez spent 10 years in the NFL before deciding to retire.
The addition of Sanchez is the second major move for ESPN on the broadcast front. Last week, the network announced that ex-Washington State quarterback Ryan Leaf will also be an analyst this season. He will assist in broadcast coverage for games on ESPN 2 and ESPNU.
