Arizona Cardinals QB set for USFL color analyst role

The USFL returns this weekend and will feature a new voice in the broadcast booth. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy will join the NBC team as a color analyst.

McCoy, who enters his 14th NFL season, expects to offer his insights during live coverage. He mentioned his excitement for the new challenge and what he’s learned so far.

‘I’ve never really called a live game, but I have done a lot of behind-the-scenes work,’ McCoy said Wednesday, via the Cardinals’ team website. ‘I’ve enjoyed that process. I love the game. I have to study up on the rules — their rules are a little bit different — and I have to learn the players, the coaches, the teams. It’s a little bit different than what we do in the NFL, but I’m excited and I think it’s a great opportunity working with some great people at NBC.’

McCoy is expected to join the NBC telecasts in either late May or early June. He will still be available for offseason activities with the Cardinals.

This season, McCoy could enter as the Cardinals’ starter as teammate Kyler Murray recovers from ACL surgery. McCoy made three starts last season and led the Cardinals to a victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.

McCoy threw for 780 yards and completed 68.18% of his passes. He also tossed one touchdown and three interceptions.

There is a chance McCoy could venture into the NFL booth after retirement. He looks at the USFL opportunity as a way to explore that career path.

‘I have thought a lot about it,’ McCoy said. ‘I’m not saying this is what I’m going to do because I don’t know how good I’m going to be. It’s an art. In saying that, I’m thankful they chose me to get some practice and do this and see where it goes.’

The reincarnated USFL begins its second season on Saturday. There are eight teams that will play in four hub cities during the campaign.
