Best of luck to him. I'd like to see him back in Tuscaloosa some day.



UAB hires David Crane as play-by-play man

After 11 years at the University of Alabama, David Crane has been named play-by-play broadcaster at UAB for the Blazers ISP Sports Network.

Crane, who has served in both on-air and studio production roles for Learfield Communications and ISP Sports at Alabama, will serve as UAB’s play-by-play voice as well as hosting and assisting with production for the Blazers all-access program on both radio and television.

“I can’t tell you how thrilled and honored I am to be a member of the UAB family and the voice of the Blazers," Crane said. “I look forward to building a relationship with the UAB fans, the coaches and the entire administration."

Crane will join former Blazers Kevin Drake and Jake Arians during football broadcasts and will work alongside UAB basketball’s all-time leading scorer, Steve Mitchell, on Blazer basketball broadcasts.

Crane replaces Cory Provus, who left UAB to join the Chicago Cubs WGN affiliate.
