When will legendary QB Tom Brady join Fox Sports? post NFL retirement

Tom Brady is very much a part of the National Football League (NFL) with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, he has also planned his future after retirement from the Bucs, whenever that might be. On Tuesday, Lachlan Murdoch, the CEO of Fox, announced that the legendary footballer would join Fox Sports, after he retires from the game.

Tom Brady had retired from the NFL, in February, weeks after a fantastic Super Bowl but returned in just over a month after the announcement and said that he would play his 23rd NFL season with the Buccaneers, who warmly welcomed back their quarterback.

Murdoch said that Brady had agreed to join the network, with a long term deal. However, the terms of the long deal were not revealed. After retirement, Brady would take on the role of lead NFL analyst at Fox Sports. He would work along with Kevin Burkhardt.

In a statement Fox Sports said that the long term agreement with Tom Brady would include him as a game analyst beside play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt. He would also be an ambassador for the network. He would help the network “with respect to client and promotional initiatives.”

Signing on the legendary quarterback of the NFL by the Fox network came shortly after two of their sports broadcasting personalities–Joe Buck and Troy Aikman left the network to join ESPN. They were with the network for more than 300 games.

On Tuesday, the seven-time Super Bowl champion (with both the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) posted on Twitter that although he was “excited” about this role after his NFL retirement, he believed that his role with the Buccaneers could continue there was “a lot of unfinished business on the field.” Tom Brady has never spoken of how long he will continue to play for the Bucs in the NFL.
