670 The Score has announces that Chicago Bears’ recently retired long snapper Patrick Mannelly has joined the station. Mannelly will have a few roles with the station during the upcoming football season.

The Chicago Bears drafted Mannelly out of Duke University in the 1998 NFL Draft. He was a starter his rookie season and played every game that year. In fact, he has played in just about every Chicago Bears game since 1998, missing very few due to injuries. Mannelly holds the record for the most games played as a Chicago Bear and is the longest tenured player in team history.

Less than one month ago, on June 20th, Mannelly, announced his retirement from professional football.

He may be retired from playing football, but Mannelly, 39, is far from retired from working. The longtime local gridiron star now joins WSCR-AM as a Bears and football expert.

Each Sunday before a Chicago Bears game, WSCR-AM has a pre-game show with Hub Arkush and Dan Pompei. Patrick Mannelly will now be the third co-host of that show.

In addition, Mannelly will appear on WSCR-AM talk shows during the week to discuss the current football season, as well as contributing a weekly Bears blog to the station’s website.

Mitch Rosen, WSCR-AM Program Director, said today: “I love this move for our station, here is a Chicago Bears player who retired less than 30 days ago, played 16 years in the NFL and now is on The Score team. This season could be an epic season for the Bears and to have a former player like Pat analyzing the team is a huge win for our listeners and the Chicago Bear fans.”

Mannelly previously had had a taste of radio work in the last few years, contributing a regular weekly morning appearance on “The Eric & Kathy Show” on WTMX-FM/101.9 The Mix. The segment during the football season was called “Mannelly Mondays.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
