It was just last month that Mayne’s former stablemate, Trey Wingo, joined up with Caesars as its chief trends officer and brand ambassador. Mayne is listed as a brand ambassador as well, in addition to a “content contributor.”
“I am truly excited about this opportunity with Caesars,” Mayne said in a press release heralding the hire. “I don’t think anyone could have written a better job description for what I’ll be doing. In fact, I got to help write the job description. Our intent is to do some fun things related to Caesars Sportsbook, the history of Caesars, and the sports bettors who engage with Caesars.”
Starting immediately, Mayne will bring his signature wit to writing, producing, and delivering sports betting content that will be featured on Caesars’ social and media channels. He’ll also be popping up at live events and in commercials.
Back to his youth
This move for Mayne is a bit of a full circle for the famed sportscaster, who is also a former UNLV quarterback. In 1980, Mayne served as an usher for the Muhammad Ali-Larry Holmes championship bout at Caesars Palace.
“Now I’m back at Caesars,” Mayne said in the release. “It’s like one of those stories you read about on the internet about a dog that gets lost and finds his way back thousands of miles on foot. Who doesn’t love dogs? Who doesn’t love home dogs?”
In addition to Wingo and Mayne, Caesars also features Curb Your Enthusiasm star J.B. Smoove in its promotional materials and comedian Martin Lawrence in a new suite of commercials also featuring Christopher Mintz-Plasse (“McLovin” in Superbad), Kristen Schaal (Bob’s Burgers), Timothy Simons (Veep), and Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black).
