Rece Davis signs contract to remain with ESPN

Rece Davis is staying with ESPN and will continue to host “College GameDay,” the network announced Monday.

Davis, 55, signed a multiyear deal. Length and financial terms were not announced.

Davis has been with the network for more than 25 years and will begin his seventh season as host of football’s “College GameDay” this fall. He also will host coverage of events such as the NFL Draft on ABC and the College Football Playoff National Championship game, with play-by-play duties mixed in.

He also will continue to host “College GameDay” during basketball season, and this summer, will host the UEFA European Football Championship.

“I’m extremely grateful to ESPN and pleased to continue working with my extraordinarily talented colleagues and friends on all of these remarkable projects,” Davis said. “I get to cover the sports I am most passionate about with people who care deeply not only about the show, but the sports themselves. That is what makes our place special, and it’s something I never take for granted.”

Davis is a two-time Sports Emmy Award nominee.
