CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson football will have a new voice next fall with longtime broadcaster Don Munson taking over the call of football games from Pete Yanity, who had done play-by-play for the past 11 years.

The school announced the move Wednesday. Munson has worked with the Clemson radio network for 16 years and currently calls the school’s baseball games. Munson will also host weekly coach’s shows for football’s Dabo Swinney and basketball’s Brad Brownell.

Athletic director Dan Radakovich said Yanity declined when asked to continue calling men’s basketball games. There is no word yet on who’ll take over those broadcasts.

Yanity is sports director at WSPA-TV in Spartanburg.

Yanity took over in 2003 after the death of Jim Phillips, who served as “Voice of the Tigers” for 35 years.
