Greer to handle color commentary for Tigers

Jarvis Greer, a former Tiger football letterman, was the 2012 recipient of the Billy J. Murphy Award.

Greer played for the Tigers during the tenure of head coach Richard Williamson and served as a defensive back and special teams member.

A native of Memphis, the Christian Brothers High School graduate came to Memphis in the fall of 1976 and by his sophomore season had earned a scholarship. Working as a strong safety, Greer was credited with 13 tackles and one blocked punt in 1977, while appearing in all 11 games.

The two-year letter winner received his degree from then-Memphis State University in Communications/Fine Arts and immediately began his 30-year career with WMC-TV. Greer has served the local NBC affiliate as a reporter, photographer, editor, assignment editor and sports anchor. During his television career, he has received a Regional Emmy and is a three-time Best of Memphis award winner for his Friday Football Fever Show covering prep football in the Mid-South.

Greer and his wife Emily, have two children, daughter McKenzie, a graduate of Memphis, and a son, J.J. who is a senior member of the current Memphis Tigers soccer team.
