Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as its lead analyst for the NFL when his playing career ends. Fox CEO Lachlan Murdochannounced the news Tuesday during an earnings call.
The seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback will call the games alongside lead announcer Kevin Burkhardt and will also work as an “ambassador” for Fox with a focus on “customer and promotional initiatives.”
“We are delighted that Tom has agreed to join the Fox team and wish him all the best for the upcoming season,” Murdoch said of the arrival of Tom Brady to the television network.
Tom Brady Coming to ESPN
According to information released by ESPN, the Super Bowl’s biggest winner tweeted that he is excited to join Fox, but noted that he still has “unfinished business” as a player.
Brady, 44, briefly retired earlier this offseason but announced last month that he had changed his mind and will return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2022 season.
Brady is the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards (84,520) and touchdown passes (624), and he led the league with a career-high 5,316 passing yards and 43 TDs in 2021, his second season with the Buccaneers.
