Joe Buck: Why he left FOX for ESPN, Monday Night Football

1. Earlier this week, ESPN announced it hired Joe Buck and Troy Aikman to call Monday Night Football starting this season.

Aikman’s contract was up after this year’s Super Bowl while Buck’s still had a year remaining. Fox and ESPN worked out a deal this week that allowed Buck to leave Fox a year early to join his longtime partner.

Buck had been calling NFL games for Fox since its inception in 1994. Aikman had been with Fox since 2001. The duo began working together as Fox’s No. 1 NFL broadcast crew in ’02.
