Coinciding with Deitsch's report, the New York Post'sAndrew Marchand followed up with news that ESPN chose to stay in-house for McDonough's replacement. He called college football games for ESPN/ABC from 2004-15. Marchand notes that he's never called an National Football League game, while also implying that the National Football League itself wasn't particularly enamored with McDonough as the voice of one of its signature properties.
Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch revealed Friday night that Sean McDonough took on a new role with ESPN, which does not include play-by-play for "Monday Night Football" broadcasts. College football, from a ratings, profile, and revenue standpoint, amounts to a clear step down. This follows McDonough's two season's as the play-by-play voice of Monday Night Football.

The Post also reported Friday that Manning will pass on the ESPN offer, though he has made no public comments.
