Manning Expresses No Desire to Shift from Broadcasting to NFL Executive Role

Manning Confirms Commitment to Broadcasting

Peyton Manning, the former NFL star quarterback, was honored for his community work at a banquet where he received the 2024 Community Enrichment Award from the Mizel Institute in Denver.

Ahead of the event, Manning addressed questions about his future involvement in the NFL, indicating that he prefers to continue his work on the “Monday Night Football” Manningcast with his brother Eli, rather than running an NFL franchise.

The Manningcast, which recently won its second Sports Emmy award, allows Manning to balance his professional commitments with family time.

During his comments, Manning expressed his enjoyment of the Manningcast, noting that it allows him to remain involved in football while still being present for his family.

He mentioned that the livecast’s flexibility enables him to attend his daughter Mosley’s volleyball games and then participate in the show shortly afterward. Manning humorously noted the addition of former New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick to their show, anticipating the unique defensive insights Belichick will bring.

Manning also discussed his philanthropic efforts through the Peyback Foundation, which focuses on helping disadvantaged youth. He highlighted the importance of community service, inspired by his father Archie Manning and former coach Tony Dungy.

Manning emphasized that retirement has given him more time to dedicate to these endeavors and affirmed his commitment to the Denver community.

Despite speculation that he might follow in John Elway’s footsteps from quarterback to NFL executive, Manning reiterated that he has no plans to join or run a football franchise.

Instead, he enjoys his role as an ambassador for the Denver Broncos, the Indianapolis Colts, and the University of Tennessee. Manning spoke positively about the Walton-Penner ownership group of the Broncos and his ongoing involvement with the team.

Reflecting on the Broncos’ quarterback situation, Manning noted the competition among Zach Wilson, Bo Nix, and Jarrett Stidham under Coach Sean Payton.

He shared advice for Nix, emphasizing the importance of gaining experience on the field, even if it means enduring struggles as a rookie, much like Manning did during his first season with the Colts.

Manning’s focus remains on his broadcasting work, community service, and enjoying life with his family, rather than pursuing a role in NFL management.
