Through the last couple seasons, us football fans had to go through the debacle of having Joe Tessitore (who’s pretty good), Jason Witten, and Booger McFarland in the booth on Monday Night Football, but now ESPN is looking elsewhere for their announcers.
There are a couple reports and rumors going around that the network is considering putting college football’s Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit to the Monday Night broadcast booth.
Fowler and Herbstreit have been the No.1 college football broadcast team for ESPN/ABC since 2014, with Fowler taking over for Brent Musberger on play-by-play since then.
But currently right now, there are names circulating that Steve Levy, Louis Riddick, and Dan Orlovsky that you for the spots.
ESPN has rearranged and shuffled around the MNF booth since Mike Tirico left for NBC and Jon Gruden gone back into coaching. They had offered big names into the analysts spots already, including future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, who turned down one deal.
Current NFL on CBS No.1 color commentator Tony Romo was offered up to $140 million over 10 years by ESPN, but he would eventually sign a massive extension with CBS.
The idea does sound intriguing, but honestly, I believe it would be impossible for them to give up their spots since they seem to enjoy calling the college games together.
But who knows at this point? Maybe they’ll say yes.
