Montana State, Eastern Michigan, Michigan -- MSU FILLED BY STAA MEMBER

#1 Post by pbpisfun » Sun Jan 20, 2019 8:57 pm

Anyone hearing anything about the job at Montana State for football/MBB? Is it open?

And with Matt Shepard getting Detroit Tigers TV gig, there are now potential openings at Eastern Michigan for football and Michigan for MBB. Any news there?

Just curious. We usually have some update from Jon or someone when things pop like this.

Chad Bush has been calling EMU basketball for years and filling in often for EMU football.

I would shocked if he doesn't become the full time football voice as well. He's very good.

Congratulations to STAA member Zach Mackey, the new men's basketball voice and football analyst at Montana State University. In addition, MSU has added football to the duties of Jason Alvine (not an STAA member). Alvine is already the voice of MSU women's hoops

As things unfolded, STAA did not assist with this search. I will not speak out of turn here. Suffice it to say, the way things unfolded was quite logical based upon the school's desire to have Alvine do football.

When Zach Mackey learned there was an open play-by-play position at Montana State University, he didn't wait for publication of a position description before applying. Good thing. Applications for the position were never solicited and Mackey is now Bobcats' men's basketball voice and football analyst.

"In January [STAA] sent an email about not waiting to apply for a position that we knew was open," Mackey recalls.
