The network announced Tuesday that Jason Garrett, former Cowboys head coach, has been hired by NBC Sports as an analyst for Football Night in America.
Drew Brees' replacement on the most watched studio show in sports is Garrett. He will be working with Maria Taylor, host, and analysts Tony Dungy (NBC Sports International Broadcast Center) in Studio 1 in Stamford. Jac Collinsworth, his co-host, and Rodney Harrison, analyst will remain as anchors for FNIA's coverage. Mike Florio from PFT will report on the latest news.
Garrett, a play-by-play voice and game analyst on NBC's USFL coverage, is making his broadcasting debut.
Garrett was the Cowboys' Head Coach for 9 1/2 Seasons. He went 85-67 in regular season play, 2-3 in postseason play, and earned NFL Coach of the Year honors in 2016. Over the past two years, he was the Giants' offensive coach for 26 games.
Sam Flood, NBC Sports executive producer, stated that Jason was always a great listener at our NFL production meetings. His intelligence and insight are a winning combination. We are thrilled to welcome him to the FNIA Team. He has already been an analyst for the USFL broadcasts and is able to break down plays in a friendly manner that provides unique insight into the "why" of a play. It failed.
NBC Sports announced Matt Casey as the new lead producer for Football Night. Casey has been involved with FNIA for 14 years in various capacities, including as a co-producer. Casey also produced the February Super Bowl LVI pregame show on NBC Sports.
