Scot Brantley - Life After The NFL

Life After The NFL

Following his professional football career, Brantley pursued a career in sports broadcasting. He has served on the Gator Radio Network as both a color analyst during games and an analyst during pre-game, half-time and post-game shows. Brantley also spent ten seasons as the broadcast partner of Gene Deckerhoff on the Buccaneers Radio Network. He now hosts a daily radio show on WHBO in Tampa, Florida every weekday afternoon.

Brantley's broadcasting career has had ups and downs. The Gators and Buccaneers both unexpectedly dropped him from their broadcast booths after the 2004 and 2005 seasons, respectively, after he had spent seven years in each of those positions. Hardy Nickerson replaced him for the Buccaneers broadcasts, while Lee McGriff took his spot when he returned to the Gators broadcasts after spending several years alongside Mick Hubert in the 1980s and 1990s. Brantley's previous radio show on WQYK-AM was also canceled due to format changes with the station.

Brantley suffered two small strokes in 2008, and lost most of his sight in his left eye as a result. He was forced to take a leave of absence from his radio broadcasting responsibilities while recovering from the strokes and subsequent heart surgery.

Famous quotes containing the word life:

    There’s something tragic in the fate of almost every person—it’s just that the tragic is often concealed from a person by the banal surface of life.... A woman will complain of indigestion and not even know that what she means is that her whole life has been shattered.
    Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883)
