With Troy Aikman and Joe Buck no longer a part of Fox’s NFL broadcast team, many wondered what the network would do for the upcoming Super Bowl LVII. Fox is set to broadcast the event to over 100-million viewers on February 12, 2023, and it appears as though they already have a plan in place.
There was a strong belief that their plans could involve Tom Brady, should his Tampa Bay Buccaneers fail to make the big game. Brady recently signed a monster contract to join Fox once his playing days are complete. But even if he were to enter the broadcast booth a little early for the Super Bowl, he would only be as part of a “three-man booth,” as Fox has already assigned the job to two of their full-time commentators.
According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, the team of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen will be on the call for this year’s big game at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Marchand also noted the possibility of Brady either joining the pair in the booth for the game or being a part of the pregame coverage, if he’s eliminated by then.
Olsen, a former tight end of the Bears, Panthers and Seahawks, retired following the 2020 season. In 2021, he joined Burkhardt in the broadcast booth, and it appears as though the two of them are set to become Fox’s lead team as they await the arrival of TB12.
