Greg McElroy confirmed to al.com that he has been hired by ESPN and taken a job as an analyst for the new SEC Network, which will launch this fall.
The former Alabama quarterback retired from football late last week following a very brief three-year career.
“You grow up wanting to play in the NFL and loving playing the game,” McElroy told the website. “I started playing this game when I was 8, and for the first time in 17 years, I won’t be putting on shoulder pads and a helmet every day in the fall.
McElroy will join Tim Tebow on the SEC Network, who knows they might be better broadcasters than quarterbacks.
