Former WWE announcer and current ESPN anchor Jonathan Coachman recently appeared on The Ross Report with Jim Ross. You can check out the full interview at this link.

Regarding a possible full-time return to WWE, Coach first shot down any possibility of coming back but later said he would love to come back part-time. Coachman added that if he could come back and work RAW once a week as The Coach, he would do it in a heartbeat.

Coach also talked about ESPN's partnership with WWE, noting that when he first came up with the idea it was met with resistance for the better part of 3 years. The ESPN bosses finally came around to accept wrestling as a viable product worth covering and they try to present the WWE Superstars as real people, instead of focusing on storylines or win-loss records. Coach believes the weekly "Off The Top Rope" segment has helped him grow as a talent, a producer and a liaison between WWE and ESPN.

Coach also discussed working for Vince McMahon, the XFL, ESPN and more in the interview. Wrestling Inc's William Windsor will have a detailed recap soon.
