FOX has seven broadcast teams assembled for the 2012 NFL season and they are dispersed based on quality of game. As the number one team, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman travel to FOX’s highest profile game each week. They’ll be in Dallas this week when the Cowboys host the Buccaneers.
Who is heading to Nashville to call the Lions versus the Titans? Team number seven.
FOX’s bottom of the barrel team is made up of Ron Pitts and, wait for it… Mike Martz.
Martz spent the 2006 and 2007 seasons with the Lions as their offensive coordinator. He spent time with the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears before announcing his retirement from coaching last January. Martz joined FOX Sports to replace Jim Mora Jr. who stepped out of the broadcast booth to take the head coaching job at UCLA.
The game will be shown on broadcast television throughout Michigan as well as Toledo, OH and the areas surrounding Nashville, TN and Knoxville, TN.
