Once his career is over, quarterback Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as their number one NFL commentator.

According to the New York Post, Brady signed a 10-year, $375 million contract with Fox Sports, a new record in sports broadcasting history. Brady will be paired with Kevin Burkhardt, who will comment on every shot, and will also serve as a Fox “ambassador” focusing on “clients and promotions.”

Brady also confirmed the news on his personal Twitter, saying that he is “very excited, but there is still a lot of unfinished business in the Pirates.” Counting this year’s $15 million salary, Brady’s total career salary is about $318 million.

Fox’s previous top commentators were Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, now with ESPN. Brady isn’t the only NFL quarterback who chose to retire as a commentator. Drew Brees, Tony Romo, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning all made similar choices.
