Cornette, a familiar face across ESPN’s college basketball coverage this past season, was also a co-host on Kap&Co weekdays on ESPN1000 in Chicago, and a host of The Jam a local morning news program. Prior to joining ESPN, Cornette spent two seasons as a college basketball analyst with CBS Sports Network.
