So who's ready for a weekly feature of ex-Cowboy coaches debating BCS Standings on an NFL Show (just shoot me now)? For some reason (that's completely beyond me) the NFL on FOX has decided to hire Barry Switzer to join the pregame show.
Fox Sports announced Tuesday that Barry Switzer is joining the cast of its Fox NFL Sunday pregame show. Switzer will debate ex-Cowboys field general Jimmy Johnson in a weekly "Coaches Corner" segment and analyze NFL action and college football's BCS standings.Ugh. When are they going to learn? My Redskin Fandom aside.....is there anything more annoying on this planet than an ex-Cowboys' coach??? Not only can you enjoy Barry Switzer on television this season, but on XM radio as well (FYI- I got a press release on this but didn't think I'd waste your time telling you about it).
Johnson said Fox colleague Terry Bradshaw will referee the debates. "Terry will keep us separated," he jokes. Johnson added that ex-Cowboys coach-turned new ESPN football analyst Bill Parcells visited him in the offseason to talk football.
