NFL Quarterback Retires for High-Profile ABC/ESPN Broadcasting Job

Jul 23, 2019  •  Post A Comment

A well-known NFL quarterback is retiring to move into broadcasting, with a high-profile job waiting for him at ESPN and ABC Sports. The New York Post reports that Mark Sanchez, who spent 10 seasons in the NFL, will start off as a college football analyst.

Sanchez was drafted by the New York Jets in 2009 and played four seasons with the team. He has also played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins.

“Sources tell The Post the former Jets quarterback’s main job will be in ABC’s lead college football studio, where he will join Kevin Negandhi and Jon Vilma. Sanchez is replacing Mack Brown, who left to coach North Carolina,” The Post reports. “Sanchez, 32, played 10 years in the NFL, beginning his career by going to back-to-back AFC Championships and playing well enough to inspire his coach, Rex Ryan, to ink a tattoo of Ryan’s wife wearing Sanchez’s No. 6 jersey. Ryan is also an ESPN football analyst.”

The report adds: “After the strong first two seasons, Sanchez’s pro career went downhill and he may be most remembered for the ‘butt fumble.’ In a Thanksgiving game against the Patriots in 2012, Sanchez ran into the backside of offensive lineman Brandon Moore. ESPN replayed the blooper endlessly.”
