Jason Garrett Is Replacing Drew Brees At NBC

Drew Brees didn’t exactly light the world on fire in his first gig post retirement. The former Chargers & Saints quarterback spent the past year at NBC but has already quit heading into year two. NBC didn’t take long to find their replacement. Jason Garrett will join NBC for their NFL pregame show.

Andrew Marchand Of The New York Post had the following:

Former Cowboys coach Jason Garrett will replace Drew Brees on NBC’s NFL pregame show, “Football Night in America,” The Post has learned.

“Garrett could still also succeed Brees as NBC’s Notre Dame game analyst, but a final decision has not been made there yet, according to sources.

Garrett, 56, was the Giants’ offensive coordinator for more than a year before being fired by then-head coach Joe Judge early last year. 

Garrett has been calling USFL games for NBC this spring with Jac Collinsworth. Collinsworth, a Notre Dame graduate, is a candidate for the play-by-play position. 

Mike Tirico, who called the Fighting Irish last year, is being promoted to “Sunday Night Football” in place of Al Michaels. Michaels has since gone on to become the voice of Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” package, which begins this fall.”

Garrett, 56, seems like he’s ready to take up a new career path. Maybe he just saw how much money his former Cowboys teammate Troy Aikman makes now and feels he’s a fool for continuing to coach. Garrett was most recently seen as the Giants coordinator before he was fired midseason by former coach Joe Judge. Giants fans were never happy with Garrett’s play calling.

Only time will tell if Garrett succeeds in his new role. The only thing that’s certain is that Jerry Jones is smiling ear to ear. Another former Cowboy is an active part of the media.
