It appeared as if Brian Griese was already out at ESPN when the community was rumored to be nearing a cope with Troy Aikman as its new Monday Night time Soccer analyst, however now it seems to be like Griese is leaving the TV business altogether.
Griese is leaving ESPN to turn into the 49ers’ new quarterbacks coach, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Their former quarterbacks coach, Wealthy Scangarello, left final month to turn into the offensive coordinator at Kentucky.
A future within the sales space for ESPN turned murky for Griese when the Aikman information was leaked, although no contract has formally been agreed to for the present Fox lead analyst. Griese might have returned to calling faculty video games for the community, or left for both Fox or Amazon’s NFL crews.
As a substitute, he’ll make his first foray into teaching, and in doing so will reunite with Kyle Shanahan. Throughout Griese’s first stint with the Buccaneers from 2004-05, Shanahan served as an offensive high quality management coach. Each left after the 2005 season; Shanahan to turn into the huge receivers coach for the Texans, and Griese to signal with the Bears.
Griese’s taking part in profession started with the Broncos, who have been coached by Shanahan’s father Mike. He performed his first 5 seasons in Denver earlier than departing for the Dolphins in 2003. After his two years in Tampa Bay, he went to Chicago for 2 extra, then returned to the Buccaneers for his last season in 2008.
