(Newser) – Monday Night Football will swap one former NFL quarterback–turned–ESPN analyst for another this season when Ron Jaworski steps in for Joe Theismann. The network is looking to freshen up its hit show—cable's most-watched ever—which recently finished its first season on ESPN after more than three decades on CBS.

Jaworski will join co-hosts Tony Kornheiser and Mike Tirico. ESPN did not indicate why Theismann was pulled, but has offered Theismann another "high-profile football role," a network VP says.
