Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick has landed a job as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports, USA Today reported Friday.

Vick will join Fox NFL Kickoff as a studio analyst for the network’s pre-pregame show Sunday mornings. He will also make regular appearances on various FS1 programming.

“I’m very excited,” Vick said. “Over the last seven or eight months, I’ve done a lot of interviews, and I think I’ve gotten better as I’ve been put in those situations more often. Things really came together (with Fox) over the last couple months. They have shows that I have always watched and admired. My friends and family are thankful and proud of me.”

Vick recently made headlines when he criticized the skills of free agent QB Colin Kaepernick and said he needed to cut his hair. He later apologized for the comment and received a “sex ban” from his wife.
