Drew Brees has jumped off the playing field into a sizable job as a sports analyst for NBC.
The former New Orleans Saints quarterback, who just announced his retirement yesterday, will join NBC Sports as a studio analyst for “Football Night in America” and game analyst for its coverage of Notre Dame Football. But the job seems to come with some promises of growth: Brees will also work on many of NBC Sports’ biggest events, including the Olympics and Super Bowl LVI.
Brees unveiled his decision to join NBC Monday on the network’s “Today” morning program.
“We’re excited to have Drew join our team,” said Pete Bevacqua, chairman of NBC Sports Group, in a prepared statement. “We know that Drew will apply the same work ethic and continuously positive attitude to everything he touches at NBC Sports and we know, as his new teammates, he’ll make us better.”
