“It’s ironic that the one thing that failed him was probably the single thing you’d use to describe him, all heart,” Howie Long says of his former teammate Matt Millen.
A longtime NFL player, GM and broadcaster, Matt Millen underwent successful heart transplant surgery this past December, and E:60 cameras were there to document everything. The piece is set to air Sunday morning on ESPN.
In a trailer released Wednesday, the all-access look dives deep into Millen’s life and that of his family as the 4x Super Bowl champion prepares for the operation. Millen was working a full schedule for the Big Ten Network while battling Amyloidosis and undergoing chemotherapy this Fall before eventually taking a seat to deal with his illness this fall.
The piece is scheduled to air on the ESPN investigative series Sunday at 9 am ET
