Mike Mayock will replace both Joe Theismann and Matt Millen on the NFL Network’s broadcast of eight Thursday Night Football broadcasts during the regular season games, Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated reports.
In addition to serving as a draft analyst for the NFL Network, Mayock is an analyst for NBC’s broadcast of Notre Dame football. In recent seasons, Mayock has been an analyst during Minnesota Vikings’ pre-season games.
Deitsch adds that the NFL Network, which won’t make a formal announcement for weeks, may make a change at the play-by-play, with CBS’ Gus Johnson replacing Bob Papa.
Sports Illustrated’s Peter King first mentioned the possibility of Mayock entering the NFL Network booth in his MMQB column on April 10.
