Sean McDonough Out as Monday Night Football Play-By-Play Voice

NFL football player Peyton Manning accepts the icon award at the ESPY Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles

Of course, McDonough's partner in 2017, Jon Gruden, has already traded in his microphone for a headset to return as head coach of the Oakland Raiders. He is still undecided if he will work for Fox or not.

Tessitore has been with ABC/ESPN since 2002 and has filled many roles for the network, including horse racing, boxing, college basketball and college football as well as various special events.

Multiple reporters said on Friday that Sean McDonough would no longer call "Monday Night Football" and instead will return to calling college football games.

How Does Wynn Resorts, Limited (WYNN) Stack Up Right Now?
Moreover, First Trust Advsrs Limited Partnership has 0.03% invested in Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ: WYNN ) for 88,070 shares. Monthly Performance history gives insight to investors into the health of companies in which they invested.

According to the New York Post, Joe Tessitore has been named the program's play-by-play commentator. He will be on the call for the college football playoff semifinals and final for ESPN Radio, among other assignments.

McDonough, who has been with ESPN since 2000, was a top play-by-play voice on Saturday afternoon ABC college football before moving to MNF. 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. It turns out, ESPN will be replacing more than just their analyst. As for who will assume Gruden's old job beside the newly installed Tessitore on MNF, Marchand cites Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss and Louis Riddick as possible internal candidates, as well as NFL Network's Kurt Warner and, in what would be a moonshot, Brett Favre.
