Brady Quinn was one of the more polarizing quarterbacks in recent Notre Dame and NFL history, going from the Golden Domers to the first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns and out of the league seven years later without much fanfare.
Following his retirement from the league, it appears he has found a new home with Fox Sports as a studio analyst for both college football and the NFL.
The television network made the announcement of Quinn’s hiring official on Thursday, via Twitter:
We are excited to announce that Brady Quinn is joining FOX Sports as a college football and NFL studio and game analyst!

Quinn was one of the more popular Notre Dame quarterbacks in the last decade, setting 36 team records in the process. He owns 12 single-game records and 10 career records while a member of the Fighting Irish. The QB won 29 games in his career at Notre Dame, tying him for the most wins in a career by a quarterback with Tom Clements and Ron Powlus.
He also owns records for most career passing attempts, completions, yards per game and touchdown passes (95).
Once he was drafted by the Browns with the No. 27 pick in the 2007 NFL draft, it was a different story. He never got going in Cleveland and spent just three years with the Browns before a two-year stint with the Denver Broncos. From there it was a series of small stints with teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets and St. Louis Rams (the last two both in 2013).
During his time in both college football and the NFL, Quinn was never shy around the media and his name is still one of the most recognizable in recent Notre Dame lore. Adding that kind of presence to the Fox Sports team can help it gain even more credibility heading forward.
