Tom Brady may not be putting up his cleats just yet, but he’s made it clear what he plans to do after retirement. Fox Sports announced On Tuesday, Brady will join the network as chief analyst “immediately after his player career”.

Brady confirmed the news, but noted that he is not yet done with his work as a player.

“Excited, but lots of unfinished business on the field with the Buccaneers,” Brady said on Twitter.

The network said Brady will be calling games with Kevin Burkhardt and serving as an ambassador, “particularly in regards to customer and promotion initiatives.”

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

Fox Sports has not shared the details of the deal, including how long the contract will be or how much Brady will be paid.

The announcement of Brady’s next career move comes after a bit of retirement whiplash earlier this year.

In February, the 44-year-old announced that he would be retiring after 22 NFL seasons and seven Super Bowl wins. At the time, Brady said part of his decision was because he wanted to spend more time with his wife and their three children.

But less than two months later, he reversed course and said he would return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for his 23rd NFL season.
