Peyton Manning shared more information about legendary NFL coach Bill Belichick being on ManningCast this fall. While appearing on The Pat McAfee Show, the Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback detailed what Belichick will be doing on the broadcast.

“Bill is going to be a permanent guest on every ManningCast show early in the game, probably the first quarter, to kind of take people behind the ropes of what the defense has to do or what this quarterback’s challenges are,” Manning said. “I can’t tell you the advantage of having a defensive coach to take the quarterback behind the ropes … Bill’s gonna do that. I think the audience is going to be fascinated by how smart he is.”

Manning went on to say that he loved what he saw from Belichick when he appeared on The Pat McAfee Show during the NFL draft. “He’s quick-witted, he’s funny, and like I said, he’s just brilliant when it comes to defense and offense,” Manning added. “The guy can flat-out coach.”

The Athletic reported last month that Belichick will join Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli, an alternate broadcast of ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Manning confirmed the news at Tom Brady’s roast last week.

“For those who don’t know, Coach is gonna be doing some work on Eli and my Monday Night Football show this year,” Manning said, per Pro Football Talk. “I gotta tell you, it’s gonna be awesome. Eli and I are super-excited. And it’s gonna give Coach Belichick something he hasn’t had in a while. The chance to be around quarterbacks that he respects.”

The additon of Belichick comes as ESPN and Omaha Productions (Manning’s production company) agreed to an contract extenstion through 2034. This means ManningCast is not going anywhere anytime soon, and Manning will produce more orginal content through Omaha productuons on ESPN.

ManningCast features Peyton and Eli Manning sharing their thoughts on the Monday Night Football game. The bothers are joined each week by celebrity firends from sports and entertiament.
