Florida head coach Jim McElwain will provide commentary during the national title game between Alabama and Clemson.
McElwain will join Finebaum Film Room on SEC Network during ESPN’s “MegaCast” of the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday.
And the coach is pretty excited about it.
This is gonna be pretty cool! Thanks, Paul. Looking forward to it. https://t.co/HAC9pKF7HM

The Florida coach has coached against Nick Saban and Alabama twice in the past two SEC Championship Games, so he’ll be able to give some insight into what it’s like to face the Crimson Tide.
He also served as Alabama’s offensive coordinator when the Tide won national championships in 2009 and 2011. That experience may allow him to shed some light on what Steve Sarkisian will be facing in his first game as Alabama’s play-caller.
Former Alabama QB Greg McElroy, whom McElwain coached at Alabama, and former LSU DT Booger McFarland will also appear on Finebaum Film Room.
McElwain will also work as an analyst on SEC Nation the day of the title game as well.
