The Auburn family is in mourning.
Rod Bramblett, the longtime radio announcer for Auburn football and basketball games, and his wife Paula were killed in a two-vehicle accident. The Brambletts' SUV was rear-ended by another vehicle Saturday night on Shug Jordan Parkway in Auburn. The 16-year-old driver of the other vehicle was seriously injured.
Bramblett, a 1988 Auburn graduate, had been the Tigers' play-by-play announcer for football and basketball since 2003. He started announcing Auburn baseball games in 1993.
''I'm heartbroken by the loss of Rod Bramblett and his wife Paula,'' football coach Gus Malzahn said. ''Rod was a true professional and was always a pleasure to work with. He loved Auburn and it showed in his work. As much as he loved Auburn, his family came first and foremost.''
Bramblett was a three-time Alabama Sportscaster of the Year. His most famous call came on the "Kick Six" play in the Iron Bowl game against Alabama in 2013.
