Al Michaels, as expected, will join NBC Universal Sports as play-by-play announcer on “NBC’s Sunday Night NFL Football,” the network confirmed Thursday.

Mr. Michaels will rejoin analyst John Madden, with whom he worked on ABC’s “Monday Night Football.” He had been scheduled to work on “MNF” when it moves to ESPN next season, but ESPN let him out of his contract when he had what executives there called a change of heart.
