NEW YORK – August 14, 2017 – SiriusXM today announced that Steve Spurrier, who won the 1966 Heisman Trophy as the University of Florida’s quarterback and the 1996 National Championship coaching his alma mater, will join SiriusXM as a college football analyst.

Starting August 15, Spurrier will appear three times per week on SiriusXM College Sports Nation (channel 84 on satellite radios and the SiriusXM app).  Throughout the season he will be heard every Tuesday from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm ET with hosts Chris Childers and Rick Neuheisel, every Wednesday from 5:00 to 6:00 pm ET with Mark Packer, and every Thursday from 8:00 to 9:00 am ET with Greg McElroy and Taylor Zarzour.

“I’m thrilled to join guys like Mark Packer, Rick Neuheisel, and Greg McElroy on SiriusXM,” said Spurrier.  “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…”

“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.”

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 ten 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.
