Former Gamecock and NFL defensive tackle Langston Moore is the new sideline reporter for the Gamecock IMG Sports Network, it was announced Friday.
Moore was a member of the USC football team from 1999-2002, before embarking on an NFL career that included stints in Cincinnati (2003-04), Arizona (2005-06), and Detroit (2007-08). He was originally a sixth round pick by the Bengals in the 2003 NFL Draft.
Former Gamecock Terry Cousin held the role the last two seasons.
"We are pleased to have Langston Moore join Gamecock IMG Sports Marketing," General Manager Liz McMillan said in a news release. "His knowledge of the game, especially on the defensive side of the ball, and love for the Gamecocks make Langston the perfect complement to our broadcast team."
Born July 17, 1981 in Charleston, Moore attended James Island Charter High School before graduating from South Carolina with a bachelor's degree in sports administration.
He has been a volunteer for the Frye Foundation and USAA Cares, and Home Town Huddle during his playing and post-NFL career. His father, Ken Moore, was a well-known radio personality in Fort Wayne and Charleston.
