College Football With a Carroll Touch: McElroy Added as Analyst for ESPN/ABC

Aug 10, 2016 08:31AM ● By Kevin
Former Dragon football player and 2005 Texas 5A Offensive Player of the Year, Greg McElroy, recently announced that he will join ESPN/ABC's commentator team this fall for college football. The announcement came from his Twitter in early July, as well as a news release by ESPN.

"ESPN has secured extensions for two of its top college football voices, as well as added Greg McElroy and Allison Williams to the Saturday ABC/ESPN commentator teams," the release said. "ESPN play-by-play Dave Pasch has re-signed and will be joined in the booth by analyst Greg McElroy, and field analyst Tom Luginbill. Reporter Allison Williams will join the team of Brock Huard and Bob Wischusen. Wischusen has also extended his contract with ESPN."

The former Carroll quarterback went on to play at Alabama, where he had two successful seasons at the helm. He broke a school record for passing yards in a season at the time, with 2,987 his senior year. He was drafted in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, and had a short stint in the NFL before beginning his broadcasting career with the SEC Network in 2014.

"McElroy is transitioning from SEC Network's traveling pre-game show SEC Nation to a weekly regular-season game assignment," ESPN's release stated. "The former national championship winning-quarterback has served as a college football studio analyst for the past two years, in addition to covering several spring games, bowl games and two regular-season games. He will join the returning team of Dave Pasch and Tom Luginbill for an ABC or ESPN Saturday game. McElroy will also continue to contribute to SEC Network's studio show SEC Now throughout the week."
