The National Sports Media Association has named Riley Corcoran, the ‘Voice of the Griz’ for University of Montana football and men’s basketball, as the Montana Sportscaster of the Year for the second straight year.
Learfield sports announced this morning, June 9, that they had finished a national search for a new radio broadcaster and play-by-play voice for the Montana Grizzlies.
Although it was a national search, Montana native Riley Corcoran was the final pick, and managed to edge his way through over 100 finalists for the position...
For 31 years, football and basketball fans all over Griz Nation have heard every play from just one voice...Mick Holien. That amazing run will come to a close at the end of this year's men's basketball season.
How does one become a 'legend'? Hard work...dedication..talent...and time. And all point to one man who has been part of the heart and soul of Grizzly and Missoula athletics for over 50 years, 'Grizzly Bill' Schwanke.
