LeGrand koins Rutgers radio network

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Rutgers head football coach Greg Schiano announced Tuesday that senior Eric LeGrand has joined the Rutgers Football Radio Network as an analyst. LeGrand will be on the broadcast for a segment during the pre-game show, at halftime and on the post-game show for every game this season.

"I think it's really cool," Schiano told reporters following practice Tuesday. "He's going to do post (game), pre (game) and halftime. So we're going to get our E-Rock report."

LeGrand, who is looking to become a sports broadcaster after graduation, began his career behind the microphone during the Scarlet-White game as the Scarlet Knights concluded spring practice. LeGrand spent the third quarter calling the action for RVision, the official broadband network of Rutgers Athletics.

The Rutgers Division of Intercollegiate Athletics announced the establishment of the “Eric LeGrand Believe Fund” to support Eric LeGrand and his family. LeGrand, a defensive tackle for the Scarlet Knights, suffered a spinal cord injury Oct. 16, 2010 vs. Army.

LeGrand continues the rehabilitation process as an outpatient at the Kessler Rehabilitation Center.

Contributions to the fund are not tax deductible and can be made by sending a check payable to the “Eric LeGrand Believe Fund” to:
