Yesterday, FOX Sports announced that Brady Quinn would be joining the team to provide analysis for both college football and the NFL.
Quinn, as you may remember, was a rock star QB at Notre Dame, but kind of fell off the radar after three seasons with the Cleveland Browns followed by bouncing around about 17 other teams.
Via FOX Sports:
In his studio role, Quinn (@3rd_Goal) contributes college and pro football analysis on FOX Sports 1’s AMERICA’S PREGAME and FOX SPORTS LIVE. In the booth, Quinn pairs with two veteran play-by-play announcers, teaming with Tim Brando for college games and Dick Stockton when on NFL assignment.
“We are excited to add someone with Brady’s enthusiasm and versatility to our already stout lineup of college football and NFL broadcasters,” (Executive VP Production) Entz said. “Brady offers a unique perspective on both college and pro games, and we believe he has the talent and work ethic to transition seamlessly between the studio and the booth.”
It’s nice to know that some QB’s who can’t make it in the league still end up with a job. On the other hand, Quinn might need a lesson in PR. Of his new role, he said:
“I am honored and grateful to have the opportunity to join the team at FOX Sports,” said Quinn. “Obviously, nothing compares to playing quarterback, but I am looking forward to this next career challenge and the tremendous opportunity it affords me to remain close to the sport I love at both the collegiate and professional levels.”
I think “obviously, nothing compares to playing quarterback” translates to something along the lines of: PLEASE, SOMEONE SIGN ME AND LET ME PLAY AGAIN. I’M BEGGING YOU.
