Kirk Hebrstreit has been one of the most recognizable personalities in college football over the past several years. As the popularity of the sport has grown, so has Herbstreit’s presence on ESPN.
And the network plans to keep him around. ESPN announced on Thursday it signed Herbstreit to an extension that takes him through 2022. Herbstreit will continue to work as an analyst for ABC’s Saturday Night Football with Brent Musburger and College GameDay.
Herbstreit will also work as a color analyst for one National Semifinal and the National Championship Game once College Football Playoff begins in 2015.
