Only a few months after retiring from his 14 year NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers Hines Ward has landed a great new gig. He will be joining the Sunday Night Football broadcast team and also the NBC Sports team on several different shows.
Ward reportedly signed a multi-year deal to contribute to NBC SportsTalk, Sunday Night Football, and be a Studio Analyst for College Football.
This is a great move for both parties involved. Not only does Ward get to work with NBC but NBC gets to showcase the personality and style that the City of Pittsburgh has loved for years. You can bet that more of Pittsburgh will tune in to those Sunday night games that don't involve the Steelers.
