Tamika Catchings retired from basketball but that doesn’t mean she has to stay away from it.
“I am thrilled for this opportunity to work with so many talented broadcasters at ESPN and to learn from each one of them. As a young girl, I never imagined I would be put in this position. I’m excited to embark on another journey in sports,” Catchings said in a SEC release.
It is fitting for Catchings to join the SEC Network as she is a former standout for the Tennessee Lady Vols and has a high knowledge of the game.
Pat Lowry, an ESPN coordinating producer had this to say on Catchings new position:
Fans can check out Catchings this Sunday (Jan. 8) as she calls her first game at 2 p.m ET as Texas A & M takes on No. 24 Kentucky on the SEC Network.
