ESPN has announced that former NFL coach and current Monday Night Football analyst John Gruden has signed a multi-year deal to stay with the WWL.
Along with his role on MNF, Gruden will also be showcased on ESPN’s draft and Super Bowl coverage, and will be in the booth for this January’s Pro Bowl in Miami. Gruden will also join play-by-play colleague Mike Tirico in the booth for the ESPN Radio coverage of the Rose Bowl and BCS Championship Game…
From ESPN PR:
“Working with Mike, Jaws and our entire Monday Night Football team is the most fun I have had in years, and I am fired up to make this long-term commitment to ESPN,” said Gruden. “Monday Night Football is special and I look forward to remaining a part of it and continuing to call these great games.”
Norby Williamson, executive vice president, production, added: “Jon has truly reinvented himself, from a Super Bowl-winning head coach to one of the foremost NFL analysts in the business, and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. We are thrilled with his commitment to ESPN, which ensures that Jon will continue on Monday Night Football with Mike and Jaws, and he will have the opportunity to do even more with ESPN.”
