CHARLOTTE – Greg Olsen may not have always dreamed to be a TV broadcaster after his football career ended, but the transition has been seamless.
Olsen did an audition with FOX while still playing with the Panthers, and called his first game with Kevin Burkhardt in Carolina’s bye week in 2017.
Now, after officially retiring as a Panther this spring, Olsen has moved into the broadcast booth full-time.
He and Burkhardt will call the Panthers-Cowboys game on Sunday, marking the first time that he’s ever called a Panthers game on TV.
“I’m really excited,” Olsen said. “The schedule came out and I saw that I was going to call this game on Week 4. I’m looking forward to getting out to Dallas and watching a good game and catching up with a lot of people that I haven’t seen in a while. It’s going to be a great time.”
