ESPN announcer Sean McDonough off ‘Monday Night Football’

Sean McDonough

ESPN will have major changes in store for its “Monday Night Football” broadcasting team.

SI media reporter Richard Deitsch reported on Friday that Sean McDonough will not be back as ESPN’s play-by-play announcer on “Monday Night Football.” Instead, he will return to college football coverage, according to Deitsch.

ESPN was already going to experience a change to its Monday night team thanks to the departure of Jon Gruden to coach the Raiders. Now they will also have a new play-by-play voice as well.

The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand on Friday named Joe Tessitore, Steve Levy, Dave Pasch and Bob Wischusen as internal candidates to replace McDonough, as well as Ian Eagle and Kevin Burkhardt for outside candidates. Marchand also says Peyton Manning will not join ESPN’s MNF team as an analyst, though the former quarterback is considering joining FOX’s Thursday night coverage.

At least McDonough and Gruden got to share a nice farewell during the NFL playoffs in January.
