Pat McAfee is set to join ESPN's broadcast team for Vince McMahon's XFL.
According to a report from the New York Post, McAfee will join Steve Levy and former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky as part of the crew that will call the main XFL games. Over on the FOX side, Curt Menefee and Joel Klatt will be the broadcast team with the league set to launch in 2020.
McAfee has spent the past couple of years working for WWE as a broadcaster, working in a variety of roles from working on the WrestleMania kickoff show to being a part of NXT's kickoff show before its two-hour premiere on the USA Network. Prior to working for WWE, McAfee played for the Indianapolis Colts as a punter from 2009 to 2016, being a part of the Colts team that played in Super Bowl 44 in 2009.
Before the XFL season gets underway, the XFL Draft will start in order to fill out the rosters of all the teams in the league. The XFL Draft is scheduled to begin on October 15 and end on October 16 with the player selections being announced on the XFL's various social media channels.
The XFL 2020 season is scheduled to start after the end of Super Bowl 54 in early February.
