“I think they sort of asked me because I knew those people (in the control room) and it wouldn’t be like a stranger sitting in his seat,” he said.

This year, after it was announced he would be one of the permanent replacements, Mahegan was flooded with congratulatory calls, texts and messages on Facebook.

“People were like coming out of the woodwork,” he said. “... I was really blown away.”

He has also heard from some of his students at Charlestown High, where he’s still teaching. Of course, they already knew all about Mr. Mahegan’s cool job. He made sure of it.

“Last year, anytime I was doing a game, I would say, ‘OK, and the homework tonight is everyone has to watch the game on NESN.”
