BRISTOL, Conn. -- Former Texas coach Mack Brown will serve as a studio analyst for college football games on ABC.
Brown stepped down in December after 16 years with the Longhorns, winning the national title after the 2005 season.
"I'm so excited and grateful to be joining ESPN's college football coverage team," Brown said in a news release. "We've been talking about it for a few months, and I think it's a great opportunity to continue to be an active part of a game I love so much. People who know me know I'm a football junkie, so I'm really looking forward to watching and studying teams, sharing thoughts, and talking football with all of the passionate college football fans across the country each and every week."
Brown will appear on "College Football Countdown" and offer pregame, halftime and postgame commentary for the games on ABC, including "Saturday Night Football." He will work with host John Saunders and former Florida State quarterback Danny Kanell.
ESPN also said Thursday that former Miami and North Carolina coach Butch Davis will serve as an analyst for ESPN2's studio coverage on Saturdays.
"I'm thrilled with the opportunity to be an analyst on a sport that has been a part of my coaching life at every level," Davis said in the release.
Davis was fired by the Tar Heels in 2011 during an NCAA investigation. He led the Hurricanes back to national prominence while coaching them from 1995-2000. In between, there was a mostly unsuccessful NFL stint with the Cleveland Browns.
