Jason Garrett, Jac Collinsworth to call Notre Dame football for NBC
NBC has found its replacements for Mike Tirico and Drew Brees on its Notre Dame football coverage, The Post has learned.
Jac Collinsworth will be on play-by-play, and Jason Garrett will be the game analyst, according to sources. Garrett has also replaced Brees on “Football Night in America,” NBC’s Sunday night pregame show. NBC and Brees decided to part ways after just one season. Brees could do a few more detailed Manningcast-type shows for Amazon’s Thursday night games, according to sources.
Collinsworth, a Notre Dame grad, is also expected to continue on FNIA.
NBC declined comment.
Tirico will join Collinsworth’s father, Cris, for the whole season of “Sunday Night Football.” Al Michaels has moved on to full-time duties on Amazon’s new “Thursday Night Football” streaming package. Michaels still retains a small role with NBC.
Jac Collinsworth, 27, left ESPN for NBC two years ago. He and Garrett worked together during the first year of the USFL reboot this spring. NBC/Peacock has seven Notre Dame home games, beginning with the Fighting Irish’s second game on Sept. 10 against Marshall.
