Hicks' first assignment comes Saturday, when NBC Sports Network airs Notre Dame's spring football game.
Hammond has been the lead Notre Dame announcer for NBC since 1992. NBC says Hammond will continue to be the network's lead announcer for Triple Crown horse racing, figure skating and track and field at the Olympics.
