Any Non-American football commentators?

You know what i just realized, I’ve never heard an american football commentator with a british accent (my ears deceived me for a sec). Id bet the prejudice would be strong against a Brit who just wants to commentate american football. Never heard any non american accent for that matter.
Can’t think of one. Wonder if those NFL games from London have had any.
It seems like other sports are more open to non-native voices behind the mic. Up in Canada, CBC has a couple of guys that call hockey games in Punjabi for their South Asian immigrant audience. And the Seattle Mariners have had an Australian on their pre- and postgame coverage for years. (Though in fairness, he used to pitch for the club.)

@nwhawkfan thats cool! Having watched a lot of soccer the last few years, Ive heard all sorts of accents. Its fun, I like the feeling of global unity implicit in being a soccer fan.

If you’re curious about the color commentator/broadcaster from today’s KU-Houston game (Mason Hutson), we were trying to figure out his accent, and he was from Georgia. The U.S. state.
