College Football Hall of Fame player and coach Steve Spurrier joins SiriusXM as a college football analyst.

Making his SiriusXM debut on Aug. 15, Spurrier will appear three times a week on SiriusXM College Sports Nation (Ch. 84). Throughout the season, Spurrier can be heard from 11 am to 12 pm ET on Tuesdays with hosts Chris Childers and Rick Neuheisel; Wednesdays from 5 pm to 6 pm ET with Mark Packer; and Thursdays from 8 am to 9 am ET with Greg McElroy and Taylor Zarzour.

“I’m thrilled to join guys like Mark Packer, Rick Neuheisel, and Greg McElroy on SiriusXM,” Spurrier said. “I look forward to talking to the fans and sharing my thoughts on college football and the 2017 season. I sure have some things to say…”

Spurrier played quarterback at the University of Florida, where he won the Heisman Trophy and was a two-time All-American. Spurrier was drafted in the first round of the 1967 NFL Draft and played 10 years in the league. After his playing career, Spurrier was the head coach of Duke University (1987-1989), the University of Florida (1990-2001), the Washington Redskins (2002-2003) and the University of South Carolina (2005-2015). Spurrier accumulated a 228-89-2 record as a collegiate head coach, won the 1996 National Championship, and was named SEC Coach of the Year seven times. Spurrier was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a player in 1986 and as a coach in 2017.  He is only the fourth person in history to enter the Hall of Fame as a player and a coach.

“Steve’s successes on the football field earned him induction into the College Football Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach, truly an amazing accomplishment,” said Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s SVP of Sports Programming. “He has an extraordinary perspective on the game and we’re thrilled to have him share that with our listeners on SiriusXM throughout the season.”
