New Orleans-based broadcaster Sean Kelley will be the primary play-by-play voice for college football games on ESPN Radio beginning next month.

ESPN announced its broadcast teams for its fall schedule Monday, which includes Kelley, former Alabama offensive lineman Barrett Jones and sideline reporter Ian Fitzsimmons on its radio games each week.

The trio is expected to call their first game together Aug. 24 when Florida meets Miami in Orlando in the kickoff game of college football’s 150th anniversary season.

Kelley is no stranger to ESPN Radio, calling occasional NBA, Major League Baseball, NFL and college football games over the last few years while maintaining his role as play-by-play voice of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Now, Kelley will take on his national role full-time, though no announcement has been made on any other assignments at this time. As previously announced, Todd Graffagnini will move from his job as Tulane’s radio play-by-play voice across town to become the radio voice of the Pels.

Coincidentally, Kelley also came to the local NBA franchise – then the Hornets – from his role as Tulane’s radio voice.
