Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as its lead analyst when the seven-times Super Bowl champion’s glittering National Football League career ends.
The long-term agreement has Brady calling games with play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt and serving as an ambassador for the network, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives, the network said in a tweet.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed and Fox Sports did not immediately reply when asked to confirm a New York Post report that Brady agreed to a 10-year contract worth $US375 million ($A540 million).
“We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and wish him all the best during this upcoming season,” Fox chief executive Lachlan Murdoch said.
Brady ended a brief retirement in March when he said he would return to the Bucs for a 23rd NFL season 40 days after calling time on an age-defying career during which he established himself as arguably the greatest player in the sport’s history.
The 44-year-old Brady said in a Tweet he was “excited” about joining Fox but that there was “a lot of unfinished business on the field with the Buccaneers”.
