Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as its lead NFL analyst when his football career is over.
Whenever it can be.
Brady, the seemingly ageless superstar quarterback, plans to dress perfectly for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next season at the age of 45. But eventually he will retire – presumably – and when he does, the Fox job will be waiting for him.
Fox chief executive Lachlan Murdoch announced Tuesday the company’s earnings call. Play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt will be Brady’s partner.
Brady tweeted who was excited but had “a lot of unfinished business on the pitch with the Buccaneers”.
After 20 seasons and six Super Bowl wins with the New England Patriots, Brady joined the Buccaneers for the 2020 season and promptly won another Super Bowl.
Also last season at the age of 44, he led the league in passing yards, touchdowns and pass completions.
Brady announced his retirement after last season, but the decision did not make. She decided to return a little over a month later. “In the past couple of months I have realized that my place is still on the pitch and not in the stands,” wrote Brady.
When he finally decides that his place is no longer on the pitch, it will be the broadcast booth, not the grandstands, that will call him.
