Notre Dame and NBC announced that the duo of Mike Tirico and NFL Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy will be calling home games for the 2020 season.
Tirico is one of the best in the business and Dungy will be doing the analysis of the games as he brings in a stellar resume that includes a Superbowl ring and a bust in the NFL Hall of Fame. Kathryn Tappan will be joining the crew again this season.
Gone but maybe not for good is the highly criticized former color analyst and Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie. Flutie may still get behind the mic for a game or two but we will see. Notre Dame fans didn't take to Flutie very well during his tenure for various reasons so Dungy will be a breath of fresh air for many Irish faithful.
Irish alum Jac Collinsworth will be hosting the pre-game, halftime and post-game coverage.
Five of the Irish's six games will be broadcast on NBC in 2020 with the Sept. 19 game against South Florida being on the USA Network. The 2020 campaign kicks off Sept. 12 at home against the Duke Blue Devils.
