Bob Costas: “It wouldn’t be right for me to parachute in and do the Super Bowl”
Amid speculation that Costas was dumped from NBC’s Super Bowl coverage over his November comments on concussions, NBC explained that Liam McHugh is being used instead because he was actually a part of the NFL pregame/studio shows this past season. Costas, for his part, said he understood the decision: “Dan (Patrick) and Liam have done the job hosting NBC's NFL coverage all season. It wouldn't be right for me to parachute in and do the Super Bowl.” ALSO: Why else would NBC bump a “big-name veteran” over a “lower-profile employee”?
