Glenn Ordway has hinted that he had projects and possibilities in the works ever since he was fired by WEEI in February after a 27-year run at the station.

Thursday, one of those possibilities became a reality when Sirius XM Radio announced that Ordway will host on Mad Dog Sports Radio.

His program, titled The Big Weekend Show with Glenn Ordway, will air every Saturday and Sunday from 8-11 a.m. He will debut on November 16.

Mad Dog Sports Radio, which is Channel 86 on Sirius XM, is built around Chris "Mad Dog" Russo's afternoon drive program. The Dan Patrick Show, on which Ordway has filled in as the host, also airs on the channel.

Ordway has remained in the sports media consciousness since his departure from WEEI, filling in on Comcast SportsNet New England programming as well as hosting its New England Tailgate football show. But the Sirius XM role is his most prominent foray back into sports radio.
