Tom Brady is going to join FOX Sports as its lead NFL analyst when he retires, FOX Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced Tuesday in an earnings call.
Brady and Fox Sports tweeted about the news shortly after it was announced.
Earlier this offseason, during the 40-day period in which Brady was temporarily retired from football, the New York Post reported Brady “really drew interest” in an announcing role if he was interested in pursuing a career behind the mic.
FOX’s longtime lead NFL analyst, Troy Aikman, signed a five-year, $90 million deal with ESPN earlier this year to join longtime broadcasting partner Joe Buck.
Brady is quite the replacement. He’ll add announcing duties to his vast business empire, which includes the TB12 fitness and lifestyle brand, his apparel company BRADY ™ and his production company, 199 Productions.
At this rate, Brady may not retire for a couple of more seasons, but he’ll be quite busy whenever he does.
