Louisiana Tech has promoted from within. Congratulations to Malcolm Butler.

Here is an excerpt from their press release:

The new Voice of the Bulldogs has a familiar tone.

Beginning July 1, Malcolm Butler, for 22 years a member of the Louisiana Tech Athletics Department and the University's associate athletic director in charge of athletic communications, will take on a hybrid role. One of his roles will be serving as the play-by-play voice for Bulldog Football and Men's Basketball.

"Our goal was to find someone who would show the same loyalty and passion for Louisiana Tech athletics as Dave Nitz; a voice that would resonate with our fan base," said Louisiana Tech VP and Director of Athletics Eric Wood. "As we began the process, the opportunity presented itself to make the move from within. Malcolm has spent more than two decades of his career providing passionate calls for so many of our programs, extensively with our women's basketball and softball teams. And I am excited about his desire to transition to being the voice for Bulldog Football and Basketball."

Butler takes over Tech's mic for Louisiana Sports and Louisiana Tech Hall of Famer Dave Nitz, who recently decided to call only Bulldog Baseball games after nearly half a century as the voice of Tech Athletics.
