Ten-time Super Bowl QB Tom Brady (with seven wins) is set to join Fox Sports as the network’s lead NFL analyst when his playing career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ends.
Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch made the surprise announcement during the media company’s May 10 fiscal call. Brady reportedly agreed to a 10-year deal worth $375 million.
Murdoch said Brady would call the network’s “biggest NFL games” with Kevin Burkhart and serve as a Fox Sports ambassador with ad clients and promotional initiatives.
“We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team, and we wish him all the best during this upcoming season,” Murdoch said. “I am sure everyone joins me in warmly welcoming Tom Brady on board.”
Brady, who retired at the end of the 2021 season, reversed his decision shortly thereafter and rejoined the Buccaneers for the upcoming 2022 season.
