Former Georgia All-American offensive tackle Matt Stinchcomb will have a new broadcast role this football season.
Stinchcomb will serve as the analyst for ESPNU’s Saturday primetime game, according to ESPN spokesman Mike Humes. Stinchcomb joined the network in 2009 and had served as an analyst on the SEC Network’s studio show.
The early-season ESPNU Saturday primetime games include three SEC teams: North Texas-LSU on Sept. 1, Louisiana Monroe-Arkansas on Sept. 8 and Western Kentucky-Kentucky on Sept. 15.
Strinchcomb will team with play-by-play announcer Clay Matvick for the games. Stinchcomb will continue to do studio work on College Football Blitz and The Experts.
Stinchcomb, a three-year starter for Georgia, was an NFL first-round draft pick in 1999. He played with Oakland and Tampa Bay in a pro career that ended in 2006.
He stays connected to the Georgia program with the “Countdown to Kickoff” charity fan event that he’s hosted for seven years with his brother Jon, the former NFL lineman who also played at Georgia, and former Bulldogs quarterback David Greene.
