Dodgers' Eric Collins adds Big Ten football to his announcing chores

All you Eric Collins fans out there -- come on, I know you’re there -- will be excited to know the Dodgers’ TV broadcaster is about to expand his duties.

Collins was announced Wednesday as one of two main play-by-play football announcers for the Big Ten Network.

Collins is in his second season with the Dodgers as their play-by-play TV announcer on road games outside the National League West. That other guy, Vin Scully, does TV on home and road games in the West.

Collins, 40, has previously called college football for ESPN.

At the Big Ten Network, he is scheduled to be teamed with color analyst Chris Martin, a former Northwestern defensive back, and sideline reporter Charissa Thompson.

Tom Hart will serve as the Big Ten’s other main play-by-play voice.
