Former Terps QB Scott McBrien joining radio broadcast team

Former Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien will join the Maryland Sports Radio Network broadcast booth for the 2013 season, the athletic department announced in a news release Friday afternoon.

“We are excited to welcome back a great Terp in Scott McBrien to help enhance our new football game broadcast format,” deputy athletic director Nathan Pine said. “Scott will bring energy and a fresh perspective to our broadcast team.”

McBrien, who transferred into College Park from West Virginia following the 2000 season, earned honorable mention all-ACC honors in 2002 and was a two-time bowl MVP in the Peach (2002) and Gator (2003). He ranks first all-time at Maryland in career passing efficiency (142.03), third in touchdowns (34) and fourth in passing yards (5,169).

“Scott is one of my all-time favorites that played at the University of Maryland,” Johnny Holliday, Maryland’s play-by-play voice, said in the release. “As a player, he was a terrific leader, with the uncanny ability to make everyone around him better. No question he left his mark as one of the best QB’s to come out of College Park.”

McBrien will join Holliday and Tim Strachan, a fellow DeMatha High School alumnus and the broadcast team’s sideline reporter. After college, McBrien played two seasons with the Green Bay Packers and two years in the Canadian Football League.
