Former NFL running back turned football analyst Robert Smith parted ways with ESPN in January. He had spent eleven years working for the worldwide leader in sports.
However, it didn’t take long for him to land a new opportunity. Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated reports that Smith has been hired by Fox Sports and the Big Ten Network as a college football studio analyst.
As part of his new duties, Smith will join Rob Stone, Dave Wannstedt and Matt Leinart for pregame, halftime and post-game coverage on Fox and FS1 broadcasts. He will also appear on BTN studio shows during the week, as well as Fox Sports Radio on Sundays.
