Griffin will join ESPN as an NFL and college football analyst on a multi-year contract. He still wants to play in the NFL, but will take on this new role for the time being.
Griffin will call a weekly ESPN/ABC college game, and contribute to ESPN’s coverage of the College Football Playoff, Super Bowl and other major events.
“Robert has been on our radar for a while and we expect him to make an immediate impact on our college and NFL coverage,” ESPN senior vice president of production Lee Fitting said in a statement. “His knowledge of the game, his fresh-off-the-field insights and his charisma make him uniquely positioned to move into this new role, and we are particularly excited to have him call a big college game every week.”
