ESPN Names MNF Broadcast Team

ESPN Names MNF Broadcast Team

Gruden had been MNF's analyst for nine seasons, flying solo in the position over the past six years.

Here's guessing McFarland will be a strong addition to Monday Night Football.

Additionally, Booger McFarland, the subject of speculation the past few days, will take on a new role as a field-level analyst on Monday Night Football broadcasts.

With McFarland, ESPN is taking a page out of Fox's playbook, as former National Football League defensive tackle Tony Siragusa was an on-field analyst until 2016.

MBIA (MBI) Issues Earnings Results, Misses Estimates By $0.40 EPS
MBIA Inc. provides financial guarantee insurance services to public finance markets in the United States and internationally. Guggenheim Capital Limited Liability holds 0% in MBIA Inc. (NYSE:MBI) or 122,429 shares. (NYSE:MBI) for 25,000 shares.

It will be: Joe Tessitore (Play-By-Play), Jason Witten (lead analyst), Anthony "Booger" McFarland (on-field analyst), and Lisa Salters (sideline reporter).

For play-by-play, ESPN has given the nod to Tessitore, who has handled major college football broadcasting duties in the past. This will be Salters' seventh season as sideline reporter. Joe Tessitore, a beloved and veteran figure in the college football booth, has been tabbed as McDonough's replacement. However, during his first three seasons, he was paired with former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski as part of an analyst duo much like the program will see moving forward with McFarland and Witten.

"Our new Monday Night Football team shares a passion and respect for the game that will be evident to fans", said Stephanie Druley, ESPN senior vice president, event and studio production. The early game will feature the New York Jets against the Detroit Lions (7:10 p.m. ET), and the ESPN broadcast team for that game will be announced at a later date. "We are thrilled to introduce this new team to fans as we begin the latest chapter in MNF's storied history".
