The exact date of Tom Brady’s eventual retirement remains a moving target, but his post-NFL career plans are finally taking shape: the seven-time Super Bowl champion is headed to the broadcast booth.
Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch has revealed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback will be Fox Sports’ top NFL analyst at some point in the future. Whether that’s after the upcoming season, when Brady will be 45, or sometime after remains unclear.
Brady famously announced a comeback in March after just 40 days of retirement, saying he would return for a 23rd season in 2022.
Of course, Brady already has some other gigs besides football and his budding broadcast career.
In addition to serving as a spokesman for brands such as Under Armour, he sells athletic gear and nutritional products through his own company, TB12. Last year, he co-founded a sports-centric NFT venture, Autograph, and previously launched a production company, 199 Productions.
Now Brady will join longtime rivals, such as Peyton Manning, Tony Romo, and Drew Brees, as NFL analysts. Fox Sports says he will work alongside longtime announcer Kevin Burkhardt.
