Mike Martz Joins NFL on FOX
Congratulations to MAXX Client Mike Martz on joining the NFL on FOX's broadcasting team. Via ProFootballTalk:
Mike Martz spent his entire coaching career in the NFC, and he’s going to get a chance to broadcast that conference this fall.
With Jim Mora moving out of the booth and back to the sidelines at UCLA, Martz will take over as part of the FOX broadcast team with play-by-play man Ron Pitts, according to the lineup posted by the network.
Martz is best known for his time as the offensive coordinator and head coach of the Rams, but he’s also worked as an assistant with the Redskins, Lions, 49ers and Bears, where he was most recently the offensive coordinator before being replaced by Mike Tice.
Given that he’s working with Pitts, the sixth man in the FOX lineup, he figures to have a chance a lot of Rams games this fall. He’s opening his season in Tampa Bay for Buccaneers-Panthers.
