    SEC Network hires Chiz

    ESPN release...

    The recently launched SEC Network, a national sports network devoted to the Southeastern Conference and operated by ESPN, has added former Auburn head football coach Gene Chizik and former Georgia quarterback David Greene to its football analyst roster. Chizik will be a studio analyst on Mondays and Tuesdays and Greene will host Film Room regularly airing Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET.

    “The addition of Gene and David rounds out our SEC Network studio roster with a full slate of college football contributors from the offense, defense and coaching perspectives,” said Stephanie Druley, ESPN senior vice president, college networks. “Gene’s experience as a former head coach will provide viewers with unique insight into what’s going on behind the scenes, from weekly game preparation to in-game adjustments, and David’s many hours watching film and preparing as a quarterback make him a great fit for Film Room.”

    Both analysts bring a depth of recent SEC football and championship experience.

    Chizik’s first appearance as an SEC Network analyst will be Sunday, Aug. 31, as a studio analyst for the Utah State at Tennessee game. He will regularly contribute to the network’s news and information show, SEC Now, on Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as other SEC Network studio shows.

    Serving as Auburn’s head football coach from 2009 to 2012, defensive coordinator from 2002 to 2004 and playing linebacker at Florida, Chizik brings a wealth of SEC experience to the network. He was named the Home Depot Coach of the Year and SEC Coach of the Year in 2010 after leading Auburn to an undefeated season, SEC Championship and BCS National Championship – its first national championship in more than 50 years. Chizik was the second coach in collegiate history to be recognized as both the Nation’s Top Head Coach (2010) and Nation’s Top Assistant Coach (2004). He has been a part of two BCS National Championships, three conference championships and three undefeated seasons over the last 10 years of his coaching career.

    “I’m thrilled to be a part of the launch of the SEC Network,” Chizik said. “I’ve been in college football for more than 25 years and look forward to offering my insight. I hope to give the viewers some inside perspective on game week preparation as well as shed some light on the different strategies that take place on game day. It’s exciting to be able to share some of that on such a tremendous platform.”

    Greene led the Georgia Bulldogs to an SEC Championship title in 2002 and started as quarterback in 52 consecutive games 2001-04. During his college career, Greene set the NCAA record for most wins as a starting quarterback, and currently holds the SEC record for career passing yardage with 11,528 yards.
    In his new role, Greene will sit down with a different head football coach in the SEC every week for an exclusive film session, breaking down X’s and O’s of game footage. His first show will beWednesday, Sept. 3, airing a special time, 8 p.m.

    “I am looking forward to being a part of the team and talking SEC football,” said Greene. “My goal is to bring a new layer of depth to fans on why teams are successful on the field and the mindset of a coach during a game.”

    The additions of Chizik and Greene bring the SEC Network analyst pool to a total of five national championships and eight SEC football championships between them. (SEC Network Football Analyst Roster).

    Although there should be at least one asterisk.

    Do they like having dry monotone analyst? Well I guess if Chuck Long can get a TV gig I guess the Chiz can also.

    Not that I needed a reason to intentionally avoid the SECN, but thanks all the same.

    Different soil types each have very unique and interesting characteristics that make each season different for us that make a living off of soil. There is no reason to be disrespectful towards dirt by comparing it to Gene Chizik.

    I see the SEC studio show coming back late from commercial often. Perhaps on occasion have to take a second commercial break yet still be late coming back.

    Re: SEC Network hires Chiz

    So I'm guessing Chiz had a job with a less known, less historic studio, in which he performed very poorly? I mean that's usually his strategy.
