SiriusXM Satellite Radio announced former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand will host a weekly show about college sports on Channel 91 starting at 7 p.m. Monday night.

The former defensive tackle, who was paralyzed from the neck down after suffering an injury in a 2010 game, will join Chris Childers in hosting the show, "College Sports Coast to Coast."

"Being a broadcaster has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid and to have the opportunity to host a national radio show is a big thrill for me," LeGrand said in a news release.

"When it comes to talking college sports, SiriusXM is second to none and I am excited to join Chris and our listeners tonight and every Monday night."
