Pac-12 Networks adds Nick Aliotti as studio analyst; familiar faces return to football broadcasts
Pac-12 Networks will feature a collection of familiar faces and a notable new addition from the Pac-12 coaching ranks to cover every snap of the 2014 football season, both in the studio and in-game. Former Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti will make his debut for his first full season as a studio analyst this fall after working in a guest capacity during 2014 spring football coverage.
Aliotti joins the Pac-12 Networks broadcast team after spending 36 years as both a professional and collegiate coach. The 59-year-old spent three stints on the Oregon coaching staff with a three-year term as a special teams coach for the NFL's St. Louis Rams sandwiched in between. Aliotti retired from Mark Helfrich's staff after the 2013-14 season.
Mike Yam, Rick Neuheisel and Curtis Conway will lead the coverage once again on game days starting with a one-hour edition of the Pac-12 Football Pregame Show. A rotating collection of football analysts that feature Aliotti, Ronnie Lott, Jake Plummer, Glenn Parker and Yogi Roth will round out the crew on the pregame show, as well as halftime, postgame and Pac-12 Football Weekly shows.
Many of Pac-12 Networks football analysts can be seen this week during live coverage of Pac-12 Football Media Day starting at 9 a.m. PT Wednesday.
The 35 live games on Pac-12 Networks this fall will be broadcast by veteran talent including Ted Robinson, Kevin Calabro, Roxy Bernstein and JB Long. For a list of broadcast assignments for the first three weeks of the season, view the full press release.
