Former Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel is the latest addition to the soon-to-be-launched ACC Network.

The network announced the move Wednesday.

Manuel joins a list of analysts that includes former Miami head coach (and FSU assistant) Mark Richt.

Manuel ranks in the top four in FSU history with 7,736 career passing yards and 600 career completions. He led the ’Noles to the 2012 ACC title and an Orange Bowl win over Northern Illinois before becoming a first-round pick by the Bills.

He retired from the NFL last month.

The ACC Network is set to launch Aug. 22.
