“The Boz,” who is back in the spotlight on Dish Network’s “Back to College” ad campaign, also will be featured in an ESPN documentary. Texas Crew Productions, of Austin, Texas, is producing a documentary on former OU linebacker Brian Bosworth, a two-time All-American known for his flamboyant personality. Producers declined further comment because the project has not been announced by ESPN.
The production company has conducted several interviews in Oklahoma, and former OU radio voice John Brooks said he has provided audio from his broadcasts calls in the 1984, 1985 and 1986 seasons.
