January 17, 2012|Baltimore Sun staff

Former Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams has added more broadcasting duties to his post-retirement life.

Williams, who works as an analyst for the Big Ten Network, will join ESPN 980 -- a Washington-based sports radio station -- as its College Hoops Insider.

Williams will appear weekly on the Sports Fix with Kevin Sheehan and Thom Loverro, and on the Sports Reporters with Andy Pollin and Steve Czaban. The former Terps coach will appear on the station through April 3 -- the day after the NCAA men's basketball championship game.

“Adding Gary to our team solidifies our dominance in the area of college basketball coverage," 980 director of programming Chuck Sapienza said in a news release. He is 'must listen to' radio and adding his expertise on the entire sport of college hoops is a big win for ESPN980’s listeners.”

Said Williams: "ESPN980 has always been a huge supporter of mine. I’m very excited to be joining their team
this year. I am looking forward to a great college basketball season with ESPN980 as their College Hoops Insider.”

Williams’ first report will be Jan. 17 during the Sports Fix.
