The Navy football program is set to have a new color commentator for the 2017 season.
On Thursday, it was announced that Tom O’Brien, the winningest coach in Boston College history, is set to rejoin his alma mater as part of the radio team on game days.
“After a 25-year sabbatical from the Naval Academy I am thrilled to return to Annapolis and be a part of the radio team,” said O’Brien in a statement from the university. “I am honored that Chet Gladchuk thought of me for this position when it came open. Kenny and his staff have done a remarkable job over the last nine years and I’m excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the program again.”
The 68 year old played defensive end for Navy from 1968 through 1970.
O’Brien also served on the staff coaching offensive tackles and tight ends before going on to coach Boston College and NC State. O’Brien finished his head coaching career with a record of 115-80.
