(WTNH)–UConn has announced that former ESPN college basketball analyst Andy Katz will be its new in-stadium host on gamedays for football games this fall.
The school tweeted out the following video featuring Katz on Wednesday night:

Katz was laid off by ESPN in April during the company’s brutal round of cutbacks. He was recently working for the American Athletic Conference at the league’s football media day last month.
It’s nice to see one of the best college sports reporters in the business back at work, and for Huskies fans, should be a treat to see him at the Rent.
