ESPN Names MNF Broadcast Team

Former Tennessee and Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten left and former LSU and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Booger Mc Farland have joined the broadcast crew for ESPN's Monday Night Football

The network announced Thursday that they will be featuring former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten as an in-booth analyst (Gruden's old role) as well as former National Football League defensive lineman Booger McFarland as a "field analyst", to replace the loss of Gruden.

Tessitore and Witten will be in the booth, while McFarland will bring a new perspective to the games each week as the first field-level analyst for sports television's signature series.

McFarland joins the Monday Night Football broadcast team after a strong run as an SEC Network/ESPN college football analyst. Tessitore replaces Sean McDonough, who is headed back to ESPN to again do play-by-play on college football games.

ESPN announced Thursday that Joe Tessitore, Jason Witten, Booger McFarland and Lisa Salters will serve as the broadcast team for Monday Night Football during the 2018 season.

Witten, one of the sport's finest tight ends and a likely Hall of Famer, retired from the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month to move into the booth.
