ESPN made a hire to its NFL coverage on Tuesday night. They hired former NFL head coach John Fox to be a studio analyst.

Fox, who said at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this month, that he would like to be a broadcaster this season. He also said that he is not done being a head coach, as he is not ready to retire.

“It depends kinda on what shakes out,” Fox said at the time, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “I’m being paid pretty good to do nothing.”

The 63-year-old Fox joins the Worldwide Leader in Sports after being a head coach of the Chicago Bears. He was fired following the 2017 season after just three seasons with the team.

As the Bears head coach, he went 14-34. He did not have better than a 6-10 record, which came in his first season in 2015. The past two seasons, he’s gone 8-24, which helped to lead to his exit in January.

Besides the Bears, he also was the head coach of the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. He was 73-71 with the Panthers in nine seasons, while he went 46-18 with the Broncos in four seasons.

Fox is one of the oldest studio analysts for ESPN, which also includes the 75-year-old Bill Polian. The former NFL executive has been with ESPN since 2012.
