Auburn football fans know full well what former star running back Ronnie Brown can do with his legs.
They’ll find out how good he is with his voice starting this fall.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft has been hired by the Auburn Sports Network to be the school’s sideline reporter for radio broadcasts. Brown replaces former Tigers linebacker Quentin Riggins, who held the role for 25 years.
Brown graduated with a degree in communications and took part in the NFL Broadcasters Boot Camp last year.
“I am always excited to come back to the Plains, but I’m elated to be the new sideline reporter following in Quentin’s footsteps,” Brown said. “It’s a great opportunity that I’m looking forward to, and I’m approaching it in the same manner as I did when I was an athlete.”
Brown, selected by the Miami Dolphins in 2005, also spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers and Houston Texans. In his 10-year career, he rushed for 5,391 yards and 38 touchdowns. Brown also rushed for 2,707 yards and 28 touchdowns in his career with Auburn.
