ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted Monday morning that former Mountaineer, Pat McAfee, will be a color analyst on Thursday Night College Football for ESPN. Pat will partner up with his former Indianapolis Colt teammate, Matt Hasselbeck. He will also make more frequent appearances on the show Get Up.
McAfee has already proven his electric personality on TV when he helped call a bowl game and NFL game last year for FOX Sports. Both games received extreme amounts of positive comments on social media and even prompted an online campaign to try and get McAfee as a new analyst for Monday Night Football on ESPN. He has also been a big part of the WWE the last year and makes appearances on social media streams and live TV. And of course, his brilliant mind is on display a few times a week on his podcast The Pat McAfee Show 2.0. But what I really think put Pat back on the radar for more TV time was his amazing NFL Draft pick announcement during this past years draft.
