Tom Brady agrees reported $375m deal to join Fox Sports on retirement

Tom Brady will swap the football field for the Fox Sports television studio when he retires from the NFL.

The news was announced in an earnings call by Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch on Tuesday. Brady will be Fox Sports’ lead NFL analyst calling games alongside play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt.

Murdoch said the seven-time Super Bowl champion will also work as an “ambassador” for Fox concentrating on “client and promotional initiatives”. He added that he did not know when Brady will retire and take up his new role.

The New York Post reported the deal will pay Brady $375m over 10 years, surpassing the $303m the quarterback has earned in salary during his NFL career.
