Tom Brady is heading to Fox Sports—eventually.

The NFL player will join the company as lead analyst, whenever he retires from football, Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch told investors during Fox’s earnings call Tuesday morning.

“Immediately following his playing career, whenever that may be, seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady will be joining us as our lead analyst,” Murdoch said.

As part of the long-term agreement, Brady will call Fox’s biggest NFL games alongside Kevin Burkhardt, but it doesn’t seem like Brady will have left the game in time to call Super Bowl 57, which Fox has broadcast rights to.
