Brady Quinn joins Fox Sports as college, NFL analyst

Professional football players don't always get the chance to retire. Sometimes the game retires them.

That appears to be the case with free agent quarterback Brady Quinn, who is following Tim Tebow into the broadcast world.

Fox Sports announced Thursday that the former Notre Dame star will begin work as a college and NFL analyst.

Fox Sports spokesman Dan Bell confirmed to For The Win that Quinn will broadcast Thursday night college games alongside Tim Brando on Fox Sports 1. Quinn will also appear on America's Pregame and Fox Sports Live shows.

Quinn underwent back discectomy surgery in November after spending time with the Seahawks, Jets and Rams in 2013. He had garnered no known interest on the free-agent market this offseason.

If this is the end of the line for the Cleveland Browns' 2007 first-round draft pick, he will finish his career with a 53.8 completion rate, 12:17 touchdown-to-interception ratio, 64.4 passer rating and a 4-16 record as an NFL starter.

In light of those numbers, it's a credit to his reputation around the league that he continued to get NFL opportunities where other college stars such as Tebow and Vince Young did not.
