Report: No interest in Monday Night Football gig from Peyton Manning
Despite ESPN’s reported interest in bringing Peyton Manning into the broadcast booth for its production of Monday Night Football during the NFL season, the former quarterback reportedly doesn’t have any interest in that job.
Monday, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported that Manning turned down an offer from ESPN to join the Monday Night Football crew. While the former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos quarterback has assisted with shows on ESPN and ESPN+, he’s apparently not ready to jump in the booth.
This news comes a few weeks after Marchand reported that ESPN was hoping to create a super team in the Monday Night Football broadcast booth in the near future, pairing Manning with play-by-play broadcaster Al Michaels.
ESPN reportedly wanted a broadcast team that would give Jim Nantz and Tony Romo (CBS) some strong competition.
But, for right now, it doesn’t appear that will be in the cards for ESPN or Monday Night Football.
