Greg McElroy didn't stay unemployed for long. The Former Alabama quarterback, who recently ended his NFL career, has been hired to be an analyst for the SEC Network.
“You grow up wanting to play in the NFL and loving playing the game,” McElroy told the website. “I started playing this game when I was 8, and for the first time in 17 years, I won’t be putting on shoulder pads and a helmet every day in the fall.
“It will be difficult, but I know that with the opportunity to work for ESPN and cover a conference I’m so passionate for, there were just too many positives to overlook.”
McElroy led the Crimson Tide to a BCS Title in 2009. He spent time with the New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals while in the NFL. He was a teammate on the Jets with Tim Tebow, who was hired by the SEC Network in December. Insert irony here.
