Over the past few months, UFC middleweight Brian Stann has been in the studio doing work with FUEL TV for a variety of the network’s UFC pre-show and post-show programming. Stann has done a great job in the studio and his performance has earned him a new gig with FOX Sports.
FOX Sports South announced on Wednesday that Stann would be a part of their football programming, which covers the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Stann joins the team of play-by-play announcer Wes Durham and Emmy Award-winner Jenn Hildreth.
“FOX Sports South is very excited to welcome Wes Durham and Brian Stann to our newly-expanded ACC football package,” Jeff Genthner, Senior Vice President and General Manager of FOX Sports South, said in a statement. “Wes is nationally recognized as one of the great football play-by-play announcers at both the college and pro level, while Brian brings a dynamic and energetic perspective to the booth. We are also pleased to have Jenn Hildreth return to the ACC sidelines, where she has provided informative and insightful coverage on FOX Sports South football telecasts for eleven years.”
Stann played linebacker for Navy during his college days, so he will certainly have the knowledge to share with FOX Sports South viewers.
As for the new opportunity, Stann couldn’t be happier.
“I am honored and excited for this opportunity with FOX Sports South,” Stann said. “I am a lifelong fan of college football and feel so fortunate to be a part of ACC football.”
Since emerging as a top middleweight contender, Stann has dropped three of his past four fights, with the most recent being a knockout loss to Wanderlei Silva in Japan this past March. He currently does not have a scheduled fight.
