One former FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY football player is replacing another in the SEMINOLES' radio booth this FALL, as former fullback WILLIAM FLOYD is tapped by the school and rightsholder ISP SPORTS to replace PETER TOM WILLIS as analyst. FLOYD, who was a member of the 1993 FSU national championship team and the SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS' SUPER BOWL winner in 1995, will work alongside play-by-play man GENE DECKERHOFF. WILLIS was fired earlier this month, reportedly because the school was unhappy with his criticism of the team.
"I’m ecstatic about working with one of the best play-by-play personalities in all of sports," said FLOYD. "I want to thank ISP for giving me the opportunity to spend the football seasons with the SEMINOLES. I’m Garnet & Gold down to the marrow. I love FLORIDA STATE and I love the program. It really doesn’t get any better than this. I can’t wait for AUGUST to get here so I can watch practice and see how the team looks going into 2008."
"We are pleased to add a talent the caliber of WILLIAM FLOYD to our radio broadcast team," said SEMINOLE ISP SPORTS NETWORK GM MIKE MCCLURE. "We were impressed with the quality of candidates interested in the opening and feel that with WILLIAM joining GENE DECKERHOFF in the booth, we will continue to have a broadcast that is second to none."
