Drew Brees will be replaced by Jason Garrett

The New York Post previously broke the news that Brees was leaving NBC after just one year and that was recently confirmed by NBC Sports chairman Pete Bevacqua.

Brees initially denied the report from The New York Post.

Marchand added that Garrett could also replace Brees as NBC’s Notre Dame game analyst.

From New York Post:

Garrett could still also succeed Brees as NBC’s Notre Dame game analyst, but a final decision has not been made there yet, according to sources.

Garrett, 56, was the Giants’ offensive coordinator for more than a year before being fired by then-head coach Joe Judge early last year. 

Garrett has been calling USFL games for NBC this spring with Jac Collinsworth. Collinsworth, a Notre Dame graduate, is a candidate for the play-by-play position. 

Nation, who do you prefer as an analyst, Drew Brees or Jason Garrett? Or, would you rather NBC hire somebody else to do the job?
