ESPN is set to announce the official role former Florida Gators head coach Urban Meyer will have with the network for the 2011 college football season on Friday.

According to USA Today’s Michael Hiestand, Meyer will be working as a color commentator for the network’s noon eastern games alongside play-by-play man Dave Pash and analyst Chris Spielman.

His games “are largely expected to involve Big Ten teams” and will air on the primary ESPN channel. Meyer will also film taped features for College GameDay and appear live on the kick-off show via satellite.

“On purpose, I’m not trying to look far ahead,” he told Hiestand on Thursday. “Could I see doing this for a long time? Absolutely.”

OGGOA will update this post on Friday with additional information provided by ESPN.

    That’s too bad…even having Urban on the game can’t get me to watch plodding Big 10(2) games….

      you mean you won’t be dying to watch the always thrilling Big Ten noon battle of Purdue vs Minnesota? yeah.. me neither.

      I hope Urban enjoys the new gig though, does well, and takes it easy for a while.

    But I thought he was going to The Ohio State University.
