Aaron Murray reveals new broadcasting job as he departs CBS
Aaron Murray has made a smooth transition from football to broadcasting, and now the former Georgia quarterback has a new job behind the microphone.
Murray told Wes Blankenship on Dawg Walk Talk that he’s moving from CBS to ESPN as an analyst.
“I’m super excited,” Murray said, per On3 Sports. “I was very fortunate the past five years to work with CBS and it’s been awesome working with them. But, obviously, being an SEC guy, I’m really excited to get back to covering more SEC games. And, funny enough my first game of the season is the Auburn Tigers.”
Murray, of course, has a long history with Auburn dating back to his days squaring off against Nick Fairley.
“Lot of flashbacks, lucky for me I covered the Georgia vs. Auburn game last year. So, I got it out of my system. And, I feel a little bit safer going to Jordan-Hare and being up in the booth compared to on the field down there,” Murray said.
Murray was drafted in 2014 by the Kansas City Chiefs, and later played in the Alliance of American Football before he entered the broadcasting industry.
An ESPN news release of Murray’s move said that Murray, the SEC’s all-time leader in career passing touchdowns, will call a handful of games on the SEC Network in addition to studio appearances.
