When Marshall University’s football television package came out in late May, there was not a contest being broadcast on the NFL Network. That didn’t keep Marshall Athletic Director Mike Hamrick from being excited about the league’s newest broadcast partner, however. Hamrick thinks Conference USA Commissioner Judy McLeod found a gem with the addition of the NFL Network. He sees it as a big step forward as the conference looks to improve its television imprint. “That’s huge because they haven’t done this with any other conference,” Hamrick said.

The contract with the NFL Network is for four years. -Grant Taylor, Williamson Daily News. Read More.
