Bill Herenda, the longtime radio analyst for UC Davis men’s basketball and sideline reporter for Aggie football games, is moving on.

Beginning Monday, Herenda will join KFBK (1530 AM) as the station’s morning sports personality.

“That commitment to this new role made it difficult to keep all the balls in the air,” Herenda told The Enterprise. “(It) forced me to step away from Aggie basketball as the color analyst.”

Herenda will continue on as the executive director of the Positive Coaching Alliance’s Sacramento chapter and will finish the 2013 season as the KHTK (1140 AM) Aggie football sideline reporter — a member of the radio team featuring Scott Marsh and Doug Kelly.

Herenda — who has done television work with ESPNU and ESPN2, Time-Warner Cable and Comcast Hometown Network — says he will continue to pursue those opportunities this winter.

In his nine years courtside with the Aggies, Herenda’s No. 1 memory was the 64-58 upset of Stanford at UCD in 2005.

“I think it was an early statement that the Aggies could play Division I opponents,” Herenda said.

On the gridiron, during five seasons walking the sidelines, Herenda’s top highlight came in 2008 when UC Davis stunned Northern Colorado, 34-30, thanks to quarterback Greg Denham hitting wide receiver Bakari Grant with a 38-yard touchdown pass on the last play of the game.

“But coach (Bob) Biggs wrapping up his career last year was a special time,” Herenda added. “I thought that it was really important to try to get that (last radio interview) right, try to encapsulize and reflect the great career coach Biggs had at UCD, not only as a coach, but as a player.

“It was something I really relished, trying to make that as good as it could be for the great listeners of UCD football, UCD athletics. What a special guy.”

Aggie Sports Information Director Mike Robles said a replacement for Herenda has not yet been chosen.
