Chris Doering Hired as Analyst for SEC Network

Chris Doering One of the SEC Network’s Analyst for the 2015 Season

Friday, August 21, 2015

The SEC Network has released its studio and game commentator roster for the 2015 season and among the newest hires is local Gator great Chris Doering.

It’s hard to find the words to express how excited I am about this next phase of my involvement with the Southeastern conference,” said Doering. “I have passionately been involved with the SEC my entire life and am extremely grateful to continue my association in this capacity.

Doering said as a kid he watched the SEC greats and dreamed of one day following in their footsteps. He was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to carry out that dream at the University of Florida and play amongst the best of the best. Now, joining the SEC Network as an analyst covering what he refers to as the greatest conference in the country, the dream continues.

“I feel truly blessed. It is rare to be able to live out your dreams and for these opportunities, I am humbled and honored,” said Doering. “I would like to thank my family, friends and colleagues that have supported me through this amazing journey. I aim to make them proud.”

In addition to his broadcasting career, Doering manages a full service mortgage company, Chris Doering Mortgage, a division of Loanwise, headquartered in Gainesville, FL.

SEC Network Hires Three New Studio Analysts

SEC Network has set its studio and game commentator roster for the 2015 season. The network ushers in its second football season with a deep returning line-up of commentators and three new studio analysts. Former Southeastern Conference standouts Chris Doering, Jabari Greer and Clint Stoerner are joining the team to provide in-studio analysis on Saturdays and throughout the week in SEC Now.

New Hires and Studio Line-Up

SEC Network’s three new analysts are well known for their football careers in the SEC and will bring their on-field playing experience to commentary surrounding the network’s exclusive college football games.

The trio will join a rotation of studio commentators that includes returning analysts Booger McFarland, a two-time Super Bowl winning defensive lineman and first team All-American at LSU, and Matt Stinchcomb, first round draft pick and two time All-American at Georgia. The line-up will rotate throughout the week on the network’s news & information show SEC Now, and for halftime shows and wraps on football Saturdays, all from the Charlotte, N.C. studios.

SEC Network’s traveling pregame show SEC Nation returns for its sophomore season Saturday, Sept. 5, at Arkansas, with host Joe Tessitore, second-year analyst Marcus Spears, radio host Paul Finebaum, reporter Kaylee Hartung and the addition of the 2010 BCS National Championship quarterback Greg McElroy (previously providing commentary in-studio). In addition to their traveling role on SEC Nation, McElroy and Spears will also appear regularly on SEC Now and The Paul Finebaum Show.

Game Commentators

SEC Network’s 45 exclusive football games will be voiced by a full returning line-up. The first three weeks of SEC games at noon, 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. were announced earlier this summer.

Legendary sportscaster Brent Musburger, ESPN analyst and Good Morning America contributor Jesse Palmer and sideline reporter Maria Taylor continue as the network’s lead commentating team for a second season. Analysts Andre Ware and Stinchcomb are set to switch booth partners, with Missouri alumni Tom Hart calling games alongside Heisman Winner Ware, and play-by-play veteran Dave Neal with Stinchcomb.
