A commentator and analyst who has been a big part of ESPN’s football coverage signed a multiyear extension with the sports channel. ESPN announced that Todd McShay will remain on board year-round, providing analysis across ESPN television networks, ESPN Radio, ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine.
McShay has been a key player in ESPN’s college football and NFL Draft coverage.
“One of the industry’s leading NFL Draft analysts, McShay will continue to make regular appearances on ‘NFL Insiders,’ ‘NFL Live’ and ‘SportsCenter’ in advance of the 2016 NFL Draft (April 28-30),” ESPN announced. “During the NFL Draft, he will provide analysis for ‘SportsCenter’ before and after Round 1, and he will join colleague Mel Kiper Jr. on ESPN’s main set for Rounds 2-7.”
This fall, McShay will be a part of college football telecasts on both ESPN and ABC. He will also cover events such as the College Football Playoff National Championship, Senior Bowl, NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, NFL Scouting Combine and NFL Pro Days.
Said McShay: “This was the right decision for a number of reasons. ESPN has always been the driving force behind the NFL Draft and it’s the home of the College Football Playoff. Plus, working at ESPN is like being part of the ultimate team, and I’ve been fortunate to develop many strong friendships here. I’m excited about the draft and my future at ESPN.”
