    Collinsworth leaving Fox for NBC

    Collinsworth leaving Fox for NBC
    By Michael Hiestand, USA TODAY

    Cris Collinsworth, an analyst on Fox's top NFL game broadcast team, will join NBC for coverage of NFL Sunday night games that will begin in 2006, Fox Sports President Ed Goren said Tuesday.

    Collinsworth, who teamed with Fox play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and analyst Troy Aikman, will not be part of the Fox's NFL coverage next season as the network will instead use Buck and Aikman in a two-man booth, Goren said.

    "We would like to thank Cris for (seven) terrific years at Fox Sports and wish him nothing but the very best," Goren said. "Over the same time period we've been fortunate to have Troy Aikman develop into one of television's best analysts. We're confident and excited that he and Joe Buck will become television's top NFL team."

    NBC has already signed ABC's John Madden to be its game analyst for Sunday nights and has said it won't use him in a three-man booth. That means it's likely that NBC will use Collinsworth in its Sunday night studio show. Collinsworth was an NBC studio analyst before joining Fox.

    Collinsworth wasn't available for comment Tuesday, and NBC declined comment.

    I always liked him when he was with Bradshaw et al, but have kinda cooled on him since. Loved him as a player though.
