Drew Brees Replacing Tony Dungy On Notre Dame Broadcasts

It didn't take retired quarterback Drew Brees long to land a prime gig in broadcasting. Not even a full offseason, in fact.

That's because Brees will serve as analyst of NBC's broadcasts of Notre Dame games, next to noted play-by-play man Mike Tirico. The network made the announcement official in a press release Thursday.

While Brees is likely aiming for a larger role, such as Sunday NFL games or Monday Night Football, this is a good start. Notre Dame football remains one of the most-consumed broadcasts in sports.

Along with the Brees hire, NBC announced it's full Fighting Irish broadcast schedule. It is as follows:

Kathryn Tappen will return as sideline reporter, joining Tirico and Brees.
