Tom Brady to join Fox Sports as analyst after NFL career

Tom Brady isn’t retiring from football yet, but he has his next job lined up.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback will join Fox Sports as its lead analyst following his playing career, Fox Corporation executive chairman and CEO Lachlan Murdoch said on Tuesday. Brady will call the network’s “biggest NFL games” with play-by-play broadcaster Kevin Burkhardt, Murdoch said, calling it a “long-term agreement.”

Brady will also “serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives,” Murdoch said.

In a tweet, Brady said he is “excited” but has “unfinished business” with the Buccaneers. The 44-year-old quarterback briefly retired this offseason before committing to a 23rd NFL season, his third with Tampa Bay.

Brady is coming off one of his best statistical seasons. He led the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and touchdowns (43) in 2021 while recording his best completion percentage (67.5) since 2007. He finished second in the voting for NFL MVP.

Fox’s NFL broadcast teams endured a shakeup this offseason when its top pairing of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman left to take over as the voices of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast.
