NEW YORK (AP) - Tony Dungy and Mike Holmgren are going from the sidelines to the broadcast booth.
The recently retired NFL coaches will contribute to NBC's Super Bowl pregame coverage on Feb. 1 in Tampa, Fla., joining the broadcast at noon ET, NBC Sports chief Dick Ebersol announced Thursday.
Dungy, who retired on Jan. 12, was the first black coach to win a Super Bowl when he led the Indianapolis Colts to the title in 2007. Holmgren, who stepped down as Seattle's coach after the season, led the Green Bay Packers to the 1997 Super Bowl title.
"What I learned is that in addition to their obvious Super Bowl credentials, Mike and Tony share extraordinary storytelling ability," Ebersol said. "We're excited to have them make their broadcast debuts with us."
