DENVER (AP) — ESPN sideline reporter Sergio Dipp has become an unlikely star of “Monday Night Football” thanks to an awkward debut.
Play-by-play commentator Beth Mowins, who became the first woman to call an NFL regular season game since 1987, went to Dipp for a report on new Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph during the first quarter of the Chargers-Broncos “Monday Night Football” nightcap.
The 29-year-old Mexican-born Dipp has been with ESPN since 2013, but has reported mostly for the Spanish-language ESPN Deportes.
He gave an emotional statement in a Twitter video Tuesday, stating that he hopes to “have another chance.”
