The Oregon-IMG Sports Network has announced that 31 year veteran play-by-play announcer Jerry Allen will be stepping away as the lead announcer for the upcoming basketball season.

Allen will remain as the voice of the Ducks when football kicks off on September 2nd, but after 31 seasons indoors, Allen will become the color analyst for Joe McMurray who has been assisting Allen the past three years and who took over calling Ducks baseball at the same time.

Allen, 67, became the Ducks announcer in 1986 when KBND owner Chuck Chackel started the ‘Oregon Sports Network’ in Eugene and he plans to spend more time with his family and Grandchildren, but is looking forward to Willie Taggart era when football season officially begins when the Ducks host Southern Utah here on KBND.
