Indiana football welcomes former player back as radio analyst
Rhett Lewis is returning to Indiana football as a radio analyst, the athletics department announced on Monday afternoon. Lewis played for the Hoosiers at WR from 2001 to 2005.
Following his college career, Lewis went into sports reporting in 2009 with WHDH in Boston, Massachusetts. He has also spent time at NFL Network working on NFL Now, NFL Total Access, and Path to the Draft. Lewis will now be working with the longtime ‘Voice of the Hoosiers’ Don Fischer.
Here’s what Lewis had to say about his new opportunity with Indiana football:
“”You don’t stop being a Hoosier when you take the helmet off for the last time,” Lewis said. “The passion ‘For the Glory of old IU’ always remains. I’m so thankful to Scott Dotson, Coach Allen, Mark Deal, and Jeff Keag for allowing me to connect with IU Football these last few years in a way that was so accessible and welcoming. That connection made me want to get even closer to the program in any way I could. When Buck Suhr retired after a fantastic 17-year run in this role the fit was too good to be true. Most importantly, to get to work side-by-side with the legendary Don Fischer, the best voice in the business, is an absolute dream come true.”
