Auburn football great Jason Campbell joining Tigers’ pregame radio show

AUBURN, Ala. — Ronnie Brown won’t be the only member of Auburn football’s legendary 2004 backfield hitting the airwaves this season.

The Auburn Sports Network announced Friday afternoon former quarterback Jason Campbell is now part of the pregame Tiger Tailgate Show on game days. Campbell was a part of the network’s broadcasts earlier this year on national signing day and the spring game.

“This is such a great opportunity to join the Auburn Sports Network, where I already feel part of the team,” Campbell said in a statement. “When I finished my football career, they welcomed me into the broadcasts, on signing day and with the spring game. I feel comfortable with those guys and we have a lot fun.”

Campbell played at Auburn under Tommy Tuberville from 2001 to 2004, winning the SEC Offensive Player of the Year award in the Tigers’ undefeated 2004 campaign. He then spent 10 years in the NFL with five different franchises and finished his career with 16,771 passing yards and 87 touchdowns.

The new kickoff show featuring Campbell will start three hours before kickoff. The broadcast area with Campbell, Brown, Rod Bramblett, Stan White, Brad Law, Paul Ellen and Andy Burcham is located across from the Cam Newton statue on the east side of Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Auburn football will open its 2017 season next Saturday, Sept. 2, against Georgia Southern. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT, and the game will be televised on the SEC Network.
