UFC middleweight Brian Stann has quickly become a favorite as part of the broadcast team for various UFC related shows on the Fox family of networks, due to his insightful comments and spot-on analysis.
Fox executives have taken notice, and now Stann is expanding his broadcasting resume to include ACC football coverage on Fox Sports South.
Fox Sports South on Wednesday unveiled its ACC football broadcast team, which includes Stann, alongside Wes Durham and Jenn Hildreth. Stann will partner with Durham, who will handle the play-by-play duties, while Hildreth covers sideline reporting.
“FOX Sports South is very excited to welcome Wes Durham and Brian Stann to our newly-expanded ACC football package,” said Jeff Genthner, Senior Vice President and General Manager of FOX Sports South and SportSouth. “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.”
Aside from fighting for the UFC, Stann is a former linebacker for the Naval Academy and decorated veteran of the United States Marine Corps, who received a Silver Star for his combat valor. He will join Durham in the booth as the ACC broadcast team’s analyst.
Stann also currently runs the Hire Heroes USA non-profit organization.
“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.”
