All:

I’m happy to announce the hiring of college football writer Paul Myerberg to the staff. Paul comes to us from the New York Times, where he wrote about college football on the The Quad and on his personal site, Pre-Snap Read (http://www.presnapread.com/). Paul is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate college football writers in the country, and we look forward to him engaging fans across our many existing and future platforms.

Paul starts with us Oct. 1. He will eventually be based in the Tysons office but will work from NYC for now. Please join me in welcoming him to USA TODAY Sports.

Best,
Mark
