No More Kornheiser!!!



Fear of flying. Yeah, right. The big boys probably put the squeeze on him to leave.

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP)—Former Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden is replacing Tony Kornheiser on ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast team. Kornheiser cited a fear of flying in his decision to leave after three years.

The network said Monday that Gruden will be in the booth with Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski when the show starts its 40th season this fall.

“If I could handpick a replacement of a football guy, I would cast a net and drag in Jon Gruden,” Kornheiser said in a statement released by the network. “He is the two things you most want—smart and funny—and has the two things I don’t—good hair and a tan.”

Kornheiser is good in PTI. Not so much in MNF.

I didn't think he was bad as everyone on ESPN's comment board make him out to be. I thought his analysis was good a lot of the time.

Will Gruden wear those dumb sun visors on the air as a commentator, too?

I like him on his show, not announcing football.
