Steve Levy, Brian Griese, and Louis Riddick are expected to comprise the new Monday Night Football broadcast team on ESPN, sources told the New York Post's Andrew Marchand.

The trio will replace Joe Tessitore and Anthony "Booger" McFarland, who were informed in May they would be replaced.

Levy, a broadcasting veteran who's been at ESPN since 1993, has worked play-by-play across multiple sports throughout his career. He's called college football games since 2016 and participated in XFL commentary earlier this year.

Griese was already working alongside Levy and will reportedly join him as one of two color analysts. The former quarterback played in the NFL from 1998-2008, appearing in games for four teams. He won Super Bowl XXXIII with the Denver Broncos as a backup to John Elway.

Riddick, who will reportedly round out the booth, has been an on-air talent at ESPN since 2013. He's contributed to shows such as "First Take," "Sunday NFL Countdown," "Monday Night Countdown," and "NFL Live." He called college football games last year.

Riddick also had an NFL career, playing as a safety from 1991-98. He served as a pro scout and director of player personnel for the Washington Football Team after his playing days, later working in each of those roles for the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 2020 Monday Night Football schedule begins on Sept. 14 when the New York Giants host the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos host the Tennessee Titans. Veteran college football broadcasters Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit are slated to call one half of the opening week's doubleheader, according to longtime journalist James Miller.

ESPN has spent months working on its revamped booth, making unsuccessful runs at Al Michaels, Peyton Manning, and Tony Romo before reportedly selecting the new team.
