Who didn’t see THIS coming?!
The former college football player is joining ESPN affiliate SEC Network this fall as a college football analyst, covering games on air all season long and enjoying the spoils of being a reality show winner!
Rodgers spoke about the new role to reporters, pointing out that in his mind, his relationship with JoJo and his new life in Dallas were still right on track:
“My career doesn’t change. I own a company that does nutrition coaching, and I’ll be doing that from Dallas as well. That company is building and growing ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ [it’s] something I’m passionate about. And then I’ve been doing broadcasting for the past year ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ doing radio for ESPN and doing some TV stuff here and there ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and I’ll be working with ESPN and SEC Network as a college football analyst. So it’s not getting back to normal because it’s a much more exciting chapter of our life, but nothing really changes as far as what I’ll be doing. I’ll just be in Dallas doing that, and that’s what I’m really excited about.”
And ESPN exec Stephanie Druley claimed in a statement that the network had been seeking out the former college and professional football player even before his stint on the reality TV show had begun:
“We began planning for the upcoming college football season in February, and Jordan was one of our first calls. He had a unique perspective as a quarterback at Vanderbilt University, and we were immediately impressed with his intelligence and passion for the game.”
Regardless, here we are, with the winner getting a new TV job — just like previous Bachelor winner Jesse Palmer, it’s all about raising the profile…
We hope for JoJo’s sake he’s trying as hard to make their marriage work!
