Dick Vitale will continue to provide his animated commentary for college basketball as ESPN has extended his contract through the 2018-19 season.
“ESPN has been a vital part of my life,” Vitale said in a statement. “Completing the next three years of my contract will mean 40 years of hoops heaven. I have loved every moment, and it has been a thrill to be courtside and call some of the greatest games in the country, sitting next to some of the most outstanding play-by-play announcers you could ever want to work with.”
