Pac-12 Network announces new talent hires
By ESPN.com staff
Pac-12 Networks announced Monday the hiring of 12 personalities to anchor its live game and in-studio coverage of Pac-12 football.
Included among the new hires are former conference players Adam Archuleta (Arizona State), Curtis Conway (USC), Ryan Nece (UCLA), Glenn Parker (Arizona) and Coy Wire (Stanford). The network previously announced the hiring of Rick Neuheisel and Ronnie Lott.
Ted Robinson, Kevin Calabro and Dave Flemming have been hired as the primary play-by-play voices of football telecasts. Ashley Adamson will be the studio host in San Francisco. Washington State grad Brooke Olzendam and Yogi Roth, a former USC coach, will be sideline reporters.
“We’ve worked hard to establish a team of on-air personalities that brings a wealth of broadcasting and playing credentials to our viewers while also establishing a voice unique to the Pac-12 Networks and our growing brand,” Gary Stevenson, President of Pac-12 Enterprises, said in the news release.
For Pac-12 Networks football studio coverage, Adamson will be joined by a rotation of Pac-12 analysts including Conway, Lott, Neuheisel and Parker for week-long analysis, commentary and highlights. All Pac-12 Networks game productions will consist of a two-man booth with a reporter stationed on the sidelines, according to the release.
