ESPN has reportedly decided on a new "Monday Night Football" crew after kicking Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland out of the booth following the conclusion of the 2019 season. The plan is for MNF to return to a three man team.
Steve Levy will be the new play-by-play commentator with both Louis Riddick and Brian Griese to handle the color commentator duties.
From Larry Brown Sports:
ESPN is reportedly going back to a three-man crew for “Monday Night Football” this season, and the trio is expected to be led by Steve Levy.
James Andrew Miller reported on Friday that ESPN has decided on Levy as its play-by-play man with Louis Riddick and Brian Griese to serve as color commentators.

When I first saw this I just shrugged my shoulders. Will the trio be better than Tessitore and McFarland? Probably, but not enough for me to start pushing material in my shorts.
