Ron Jaworski Signs Five-Year Extension With ESPN, Exits MNF Booth

ESPN has announced that Ron Jaworski has signed a new five-year extension with ESPN that will increase his role as an in-studio analyst and remove him from the Monday Night Football booth.

According to the release, Jaworski will appear on Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown, NFL Matchup, as well as SportsCenter, NFL Live, NFL Kickoff and the network's coverage of the NFL Draft and Super Bowl week. Jaworski will make appearances on Mike & Mike in the Morning, Pardon the Interruption, and other platforms and shows throughout the year.

Jaworski will not be replaced in the Monday Night Football booth, with Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden forming a two-man broadcast.

“I am grateful for having the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of working on Monday Night Football the past five seasons with Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and so many other talented people behind the scenes who make the show so great, and I look forward to bringing my passion and knowledge of the game to more fans in more places than ever before on any and all football topics,” said Jaworski.
