NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister has been hired as the new color analyst for the Saints Radio Network, according to a report from Entercom Communications. McAllister replaces former Saint and scout Hokie Gajan, who passed away in April. Gajan shared the radio booth with the voice of the Saints, Jim Henderson for the past 15 years.
McAllister is no stranger to the color analyst position. He filled in during the 2015 season, while Gajan was battling cancer.
"There are very few people that I could foresee succeeding Hokie Gajan, but Deuce McAllister is at the top of a very select list," said Henderson in the report. "I look forward to a long and prosperous association with Deuce just as I enjoyed with Hokie since the year 2000, the year of the Saints first playoff victory."
McAllister worked with Raycom Media as a Saints analyst during the 2015 Saints preseason.
