Jackson back in action in booth
Retirement lasts just eight months for legendary ABC broadcaster
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Keith
Jackson, whose booming voice was a
signature of ABC-TV's college foot-
ball coverage until his retirement last
year, returned to the booth Saturday.
Some eight months after quitting,
the 70-year-old broadcaster did play-
by-play for the network's regional tele-
cast of the Califormia-Nebraska game
with longtime partner Bob Griese.
"I feel just like a rookie today,"
Jackson said two hours before kickoff.
"I had no thought of doing this again.
I was turned off. We were going a
totally different direction."
Jackson, in his 33rd year with ABC,
was talked into returning by ABC
Sports president Howard Katz.
Jackson, who turns 71 in October,
said his contract is for three years "or
as long as I want, I guess."
"I feel good and healthy," he said.
With the exception of Saturday's
game, Jackson will do only West
Coast Pac-10 games to minimize trav-
el from his Los Angeles home.
He did the California-Nebraska
game because he had planned to be in
Lincoln for the dedication of
Nebraska's new $36 million press box
and luxury skybox.
The pressbox was named after
Jackson's longtime friend Don Bryant,
who retired as Nebraska's sports infor-
mation director in 1996.
Bryant had a hand in naming the
bathroom in the television portion of
press box "The Keith Jackson Toilet
Facility," which drew recurring chuck-
les from Griese.
"Every stop we made last year,
they'd bring him all these gifts
because he was retiring - they didn't
bring me a damn thing," Griese said.
"And now he gets a bathroom named
after him for coming out of retire-
For the record, Jackson claimed that
he never has uttered the phrase
"Whoa, Nellie!" during a broadcast.
He said the phrase, often attributed to
him, was originated by comedians
doing impersonations of him.
"It just got tagged onto me,"
Jackson said. "There's nobody in our
family named Nellie, I'll guarantee
