COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland and Maryland Sports Properties announced on Friday the addition of former Terrapin standout quarterback Scott McBrien to the Maryland Sports Radio Network broadcast team for the 2013 football season.
McBrien will work alongside Johnny Holliday and Tim Strachan as the team’s sideline reporter.
“We are excited to welcome back a great Terp in Scott McBrien to help enhance our new football game broadcast format,” said Deputy Athletic Director for External Operations Nathan Pine. “Scott will bring energy and a fresh perspective to our broadcast team.”
After transferring from West Virginia following the 2000 season, McBrien served as the starter in the 2002 and 2003 seasons. He currently is Maryland’s all-time leader in passing efficiency (142.03) and ranks third with 34 career touchdown passes and ranks fourth with 5,169 passing yards.
McBrien earned honorable mention All-ACC honors as junior in 2002 and was named MVP of the Peach Bowl. As a senior, he threw for a career-high 19 touchdowns and earned MVP honors at the Gator Bowl.
“Scott is one of my all-time favorites that played at the University of Maryland,” said play-by-play voice Johnny Holliday, who is entering his 35th season. “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.
“We feel very fortunate to have Scott join Tim and I on our broadcasts. I feel he will be just as good with a microphone as he was on the football field–two former DeMatha [Catholic High School] guys! It should be fun.”
McBrien signed with the Green Bay Packers where he spent two seasons following his time at Maryland. In 2006, he signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League where he played two seasons. Scott is still very involved in the community running quarterback camps throughout the year and teaching quarterbacks of all ages.
