**Lee Corso Speaker**
Upon graduating from Florida State with a bachleor’s degree in physical education in 1957 and a master’s degree in administration and supervision in 1958, Corso became the quarterbacks coach at the University of Maryland under his former FSU coach Tommy Nugent. In 1962, Corso followed Nugent’s guidance to recruit an academically and athletically qualified black player and convinced Darryl Hill to transfer from the Naval Academy, making him the first African-American football player in the Atlantic Coast Conference. In 1966, Lee took a job as the defensive backs coach at Navy. In 1969, he was given the head coaching position at the University of Louisville where he coached his ESPN colleague Tom Jackson. After taking Louisville to only it’s second-ever bowl game in 1972, he was hired by Indiana University. So the list of possible Lee Corso speaker topics extends well beyond just the normal sports stories. A Lee Corso speaker appearance will enhance any event.
**Lee Corso Appearance**
In 1987, Lee was hired by ESPN as an analyst for the College GameDay program. He often plays the role of comic foil to co-hosts Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit as they cover the major college football games from August until January. Corso’s catch phrase, “Not so fast, my friend!”, with pencil always in hand, is usually directed at Kirk Herbstreit, in disagreement with Herbstreit’s predictions. Corso is also known for ending every weekly show with his “Mascot Head Prediction,” when he chooses who he thinks will win the game at GameDay’s site by donning the headpiece of the school’s mascot. Corso also says “sweetheart” to almost everyone. Lee Corso appearance at your event or function is sure to be a hit with sports fans and non-sports fans alike.
