CLEMSON - Rodney Williams will partner with play-by-play announcer Don Munson in the booth calling games on the Clemson football radio network, the school announced Friday. Williams will provide color commentary, replacing Will Merritt after his 12-year run.
Williams (32-10-2 from 1985-88) was the sole owner of the most wins in Clemson quarterbacking history for 26 years, until Tajh Boyd matched him last fall. At the time he graduated, Williams held school career records with 4,647 passing yards on 333-of-717 attempts in 44 starts.
"I'm excited to be a part of the Clemson football broadcast and be around the program again," Williams said. "This is a great opportunity, and I can't wait to get started this fall."
Williams was inducted to the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame in the spring, and joined the Clemson Hall of Fame in 2000. He never earned an all-ACC accolade, but he was MVP of the 1986 Gator Bowl and 1988 Citrus Bowl as well as Clemson's offensive MVP in his senior season of 1988.
"We're happy to bring Rodney on board as the color analyst," said Gerry Dickey, general manager of Clemson Tigers Sports Properties. "His experience and knowledge of Clemson football will be great for the broadcast."
Munson was named Voice of The Tigers on April 30, replacing Pete Yanity, who'd served in that capacity since 2003.
"It's great to welcome Rodney back to the Clemson broadcast," Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said. "He and Don will do a great job for us in the booth this fall and our fans will enjoy listening to them call games."
