Tim Brando To Join ESPN's SEC Network

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports
There have been many reports this week that former CBS Sports veteran broadcaster Tim Brando would be joining ESPN's SEC Network this fall. On Thursday Brando confirmed the news by releasing a statement on his "Tim Brando Show" Facebook page. It was a lengthily message but here are important parts.
quote:

"Yesterday, as I was leaving Memphis and the wonderful folks at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, ESPN’s Brett McMurphy (a favorite guest of ours on the Tim Brando Show) aka “Sources McMurphy” reported via Twitter, that I was being added to the ensemble of talent with the SEC Network. While accurate, his story is not yet complete.

Let me clarify, I’m genuinely excited, grateful, and cannot wait to be a part of the SEC Network Team. Yes, I have verbally agreed to join them! However, this story going public was not something I was prepared to address so quickly.

Since my exit from CBS in January, there has been much speculation about my future. (Most of it connecting me with the SEC Network.) The usual line of questioning towards goes a little like this: “Hey Tim, How you doing? Going to the SEC Network?!”

I have pledged to live in the here and now of life. The truth is, at this stage, I have no idea if I will be involved in any of the SEC Network’s coverage of College Football. I am hopeful and remain passionate about my love of College Football. In whatever capacity they deem me worthy of inclusion; I will be ready to work.

Okay, that’s what I don’t know. Here is what I do know. The SEC Network wants me to call a lot of College Basketball. I have always placed College Hoops on a pedestal and the chance to get back into the SEC in the winter, along with my ACC relationship with Raycom genuinely excites me.
