With Super Bowl XLV less than two weeks away, ESPN is ramping up their roster of analysts. Their latest addition is New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, who will appear on ESPN three days leading up to the big game.
Payton will appear on a SportsCenter Special next Thursday at 3 p.m. ET, SportsCenter Special: The Champions (featuring every ESPN NFL analyst at the Super Bowl with a championship ring) next Friday at 3 p.m. ET and part of the network’s coverage hours before kick-off on Super Bowl Sunday.
“I am pleased to be a part of ESPN’s Super Bowl coverage,” Payton said. “We get the chance to work closely with the staff at ESPN during the year covering our game and our team. They are professional and their body of work speaks for itself. It will be a fun experience to be on the other side of the desk, so to speak, analyzing the game. I look forward to joining Coach Gruden, Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski, Coach Ditka,Chris Berman and the rest of the crew on the set there in Texas.”
