Jon Gruden Will Replace Tony Kornheiser on ‘Monday Night Football’

Former Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden will join play-by-play man Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski in September on Monday Night Football, replacing Tony Kornheiser.

From ESPN:

“This is a tremendous opportunity and I am very excited to be associated with ESPN and Monday Night Football,” Gruden said in a statement released by ESPN. “I grew up a fan of Monday Night Football, and whether I’ve coached on Monday night or watched, I’ve hardly missed a game all these years.

“To join Mike and Jaws in the booth and to work alongside this top-notch team is going to be a real thrill.”

The 40th season of “Monday Night Football” kicks off Sept. 14 with a doubleheader; the New England Patriots play host to the Buffalo Bills at 7 p.m. ET and the San Diego Chargers visit the Oakland Raiders at 10:15 ET.

Kornheiser decided to step down after three years of MNF.
