Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler have been names that have been synonymous with College Football for two decades. Still, now ESPN is reportedly considering having the duo move from Saturdays to Mondays.
Front Office Sports is reporting that if the College Football season is pushed back to the spring or canceled altogether, Herbstreit and Fowler could move to the Monday Night Football booth, which is still vacant.
If college football’s fall season is delayed or, at worst, canceled, ESPN will likely turn to its top college football broadcast team of analyst Kirk Herbstreit and play-by-play announcer Chris Fowler to call “MNF,” sources tell Front Office Sports.
On the other hand, if college football kicks off on time this fall, ESPN would likely keep the college duo in their primetime perch on “ABC’s Saturday Night Football” – and pick a new “MNF” team from a shortlist of internal candidates, including Louis Riddick, Dan Orlovsky, Pat McAfee, Steve Levy, Dave Pasch, and Brian Griese.”
It will be interesting to see in the event of the College Football season being canceled if Fowler and Herbstreit could excel at calling the pros as well.
