The MegaCast, described as one of the most comprehensive to date, will offer viewers 14 different presentations on various ESPN platforms.
Washington is the first HBCU football coach to be part of the program.
“You know, first I just think it is a golden opportunity,” he said. “I think in these times we are respected as valuable coaches coming from HBCUs. These opportunities have not always been afforded to us, so I’m very humbled and proud at the same time that I was granted this opportunity.”
ESPN debuted the MegaCast production at the conclusion of the 2014 season and has activated it for each College Football Playoff championship game.
