Update: Ryan O'Halloran of CSNwashington.com talked to McNabb about his gig with Comcast SportsNet and about who he likes in the tournament.
We're not sure where Donovan McNabb is going to be later this year but we do know where he will be during the NCAA basketball tournament.
The former Syracuse point guard, better known for his exploits on the gridiron with the Orange (or Orangemen, as they were known then) will be joining the crew at Comcast Sports Net in Washington to comment on the first two rounds (I refuse to call the Thursday through Sunday action the second and third rounds) of the NCAA basketball tournament.
Watch for McNabb on various editions of Geico SportsNet and Washington Post Live. The full press release from CSN is after the jump.

McNabb, a 12-year veteran of the NFL, spent two seasons as a guard on the Syracuse University basketball team following a stand-out hoops career at Mt. Carmel High School in Illinois. As a freshman, McNabb was a member of the 1996 Orange basketball team under Jim Boeheim that posted a 29-9 record and appeared in the NCAA championship game, losing to Kentucky. Following his sophomore season, he left the basketball team to focus on his football career.
