Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as its lead NFL analyst when his playing career ends.

Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced the news Tuesday during an earnings call. The seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback will call games alongside lead play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt and also will work as an “ambassador” for Fox with a focus on “client and promotional initiatives.”

“We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and wish him all the best during this upcoming season,” Murdoch said.

Brady tweeted that he is excited to eventually join Fox but noted he still has “unfinished business” as a player.

Excited, but a lot of unfinished business on the field with the @Buccaneers #LFG https://t.co/FwKlQp02Hi

Brady, 44, briefly retired earlier this offseason but announced last month that he had changed his mind and will return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2022 season.

Brady is the NFL leader in career passing yards (84,520) and touchdown passes (624), and he led the league with a career-high 5,316 passing yards and 43 TDs in 2021, his second season with the Buccaneers.
