Drew Brees’ career with NBC Sports is over after one year and the network has already found his replacement for Football Night in America.
According to a report from Andrew Marchand, former Dallas Cowboys head coach and New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett will replace Brees on the NBC’s pregame show for Sunday Night Football.
There’s also a chance that Garrett may end up taking Brees’ spot as the lead analyst on Notre Dame football games on NBC.
“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,” Marchand added, via the New York Post.
Earlier this off-season, Brees denied that his days at NBC were over. Though, he did leave that door open.
“Despite speculation from media about my future this fall, I’m currently undecided,” Brees tweeted. “I may work for NBC, I may play football again, I may focus on business and philanthropy, I may train for the pickleball tour, senior golf tour, coach my kids or all of the above. I’ll let you know.”
The rumors are true. Brees is out; Garrett is up to the plate.
