Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as senior NFL analyst after retiring from the game.

Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced the news Tuesday during a call to corporate investors. The seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback will partner with leading play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt to name games and work as “ambassadors” for Fox with a focus on “customer and promotional initiatives.”

Brady tweeted that he was excited to finally join Fox but noted that he had “unfinished business” as a player.

Fox recently lost its top football announcers Joe Buck and Troy Aikman to ESPN, replacing Buck with Burkhardt.

There’s a new thread online with men talking about the “unwritten rules” they have. So if you’ve always wanted to crack the secret code of manhood, this is an exciting opportunity. Here are some highlights:

1. “Take down when greeting someone. Nod up if it’s someone you know.”

2. “When a friend buys you a drink, you don’t pay it back. You buy the next round.”

3. “Beer, pizza, and BBQ are acceptable payment for helping another man.”

4. “Don’t use the urinal next to an occupied one.”

5. “Don’t roast a man in front of his child.”

6. “Don’t start drama. When drama begins, take steps to de-escalate.”

7. “When he’s flirting with her, him, or them . . . don’t interrupt.”

8. “When your friend’s crush is around, they’re the funniest of the group.”
