Klatt named FOX Sports lead college football analyst

FOX Sports recently named former Colorado Buffaloes quarterback Joel Klatt lead college football analyst, replacing Charles Davis who will soon call NFL games for the network.

Klatt will work alongside of Gus Johnson and sideline reporter Molly McGrath as they take on their first assignment Sept. 3 when Utah host Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan Wolverines on FOX Sports 1. The Arvada native previously called Thursday and Friday college football games on Fox Sports 1 and last year worked in studio for the network’s lead college football pregame, halftime and postgame shows.

As CU’s starting QB from 2003-05, Klatt set 44 passing records during his career with the Buffs. He left the school as the all-time leading passer. Klatt also attained a degree in economics with aspirations of either being a real estate agent or coach. After FOX Sports Rocky Mountain offered him a fill-in anchor job for a high school football game, he had a change of heart.

Klatt went on to do some color commentating for Colorado high school football before being a radio personality for Mile High Sports Radio and then 104.3 “The Fan.”

Former Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart will replace Klatt in the studio doing pregame, halftime and postgame shows.
