Many people expressed their dismay over Tony Kornheiser’s performance or lack thereof in the Monday Night Football booth with Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski over the last three seasons. Worry no more critics.
On Monday, Kornheiser left the MNF booth and will be replaced by former Tampa Bay Bucs head coach Jon Gruden. While the move might appear on the surface that ESPN felt the experiment wasn’t working, the main culprit is the travel according to Kornheiser.
Much like newly retired analyst John Madden, Tony K is not a fan of flying. This season’s schedule is a bit more taxing and would likely require Kornheiser to get on a plane, which ultimately made the difference for him.
Although he is out of the booth, Kornheiser will still torture colleague Michael Wilbon weekdays on ESPN’s Pardon The Interruption.
