2005_05_sports_ditka.jpgESPN has inked Da Coach to a deal that will make the former Bears coach a fixture across all ESPN properties. As part of the deal, he'll make regular appearances on the Mike & Mike Show and Dan Patrick Show -- which both air nation-wide. He will also appear on ESPN's Sunday NFL radio coverage, the "Sunday NFL Countdown" pregame show and ESPNNews. But Chicagoist wants to know... could a "Sunday NFL Countdown" of all 6 inch Ditkas outdraw NFL on Fox's pregame?
