    Marc Daniels said Leger Douzable will be sideline reporter.

    I have been listening to 740am during the games for the longest time. All the way back when Marc and Jerry started. Marc sounded a little choked up during him interviewing Jerry. Me to. Hate to admit but I got a little teary eye as well. I'm an ole softy though. End of an era. I'm looking forward to see what Leger brings to the table. Go Knight.

    He can finally let that stache age gracefully into the color it wants to go.

    One of Jerry's greatest moments with UCF was his commentary before the winning kick at Alabama.

    Thanks for the heads up. I guess I was caught up in the video, after watching it several times. What a great moment in UCF history. IT's hard to believe it has been 19 years already. :sunglasses:

    Jerry Greene was always my favorite Jerry. Loved how entertaining he was... RIP Jerry. End of an era though and hope he visits the booth occasionally.

    Kinda sudden, I felt he had at least 2-3 more years left in the tank

    Hopefully we can get him up in the booth to work with Daniels for some of the big games - if anything for color commentary. I’d find him more interesting than some of the commentators ESPN finds.
