CLEMSON FOOTBALL

Former Tiger is first ESPN ACC Network analyst hire


by -

Clemson Tigers fans will see former offensive guard, team captain and first-team All-ACC selection Eric Mac Lain on ACC Network (ACCN) Fridays and Saturdays in the fall. He will contribute to studio coverage with analysis of the conference’s season-long football action. ACCN is the new, 24/7 national platform that will launch on August 22, 2019. One week later, Clemson will kick off ACCN’s football slate on August 29 when it hosts Georgia Tech in the season-opening game for both teams.

Mac Lain said, “It was a privilege to play at Clemson and compete in the ACC, and I’m blessed to now have this opportunity to cover football as part of ACCN. I look forward to being a part of the ACCN family while helping to bring an unprecedented amount of content and events to our fans.”

A Hope Mill, N.C., native, Mac Lain played at Clemson 2011-15, where the Tigers captured two conference championships and made a national championship appearance. He obtained the most wins (46) by a single player in Clemson history, while earning Strength and Conditioning All America honors. As a student, Mac Lain was an All-ACC Academic Football Team selection and was graduated with a bachelor’s in health science (2015) and a master’s in athletic leadership and administration (2017). He will be joining ACCN from JMI Sports where he has worked on multimedia sponsorship rights for Clemson athletics.
