Tom Brady makes FOX debut as part of $375M contract

 September 4, 2023

Seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady made his debut on Fox Sports, marking the start of his enormous $375 million contract.

In his initial appearance, Brady ardently cheered on his college alma mater the University of Michigan, as the Wolverines geared up to face off against the East Carolina Pirates in the inaugural game of the latest Big 10 season, as the Daily Mail reported.

Nostalgic Shoutout for Michigan

The football legend, now 46, recently made headlines when he unveiled his relationship with renowned supermodel Irina Shayk.

However, on this occasion, he was all about football. Brady featured prominently in a teaser video during Fox's Big Noon Kickoff last Saturday, seizing the moment to rally other teams with a clarion call of confidence in the Wolverines.

"Look guys, I hate to ruin this for everyone else, but this is Michigan's year," proclaimed the celebrated quarterback.

He furthered his point, saying, "We're coming off two back-to-back Big 10 titles, two Ohio State beatdowns...sorry Urban [Meyers]...look coach Harbaugh's got all the key pieces back. He's got a blue chip quarterback in J.J. McCarthy, a two-headed monster in the backfield and we've got a loaded defense."

Emphasizing Michigan's illustrious legacy, Brady declared, "The winningest program in college football history is ready to go and make another national championship run. We got this...let's go! Go Blue!"

Following Brady's pregame remarks, the Wolverines triumphed over East Carolina with a decisive 30-3 victory in their matchup, as the New York Post reported.

Brady's impassioned message heralds the onset of a decade-long partnership with Fox Sports, a deal inked last summer. The network is set to feature the football icon more regularly in its 2024 broadcasts.

Brady's Storied Journey

Brady's allegiance to Michigan is rooted in his college days, where he donned the Wolverines' jersey from 1996 to 1999.

He was instrumental in the team's victory over the Washington State Cougars during the 1998 Rose Bowl, clinching a National Championship title.

Although Brian Griese was Michigan's starting quarterback during that period, Brady's contribution was undeniable.

He subsequently started all games for the 1998 and 1999 seasons, even being awarded All-Big Ten honorable mentions in both instances. By his final year, he had risen to the rank of team captain.

His illustrious career took off when the New England Patriots selected him in the 2000 draft. Under the guidance of coach Bill Belichick, Brady amassed six Super Bowl trophies.

Adding to this stellar record, he bagged another Super Bowl title in 2021 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Opting for retirement at the conclusion of the 2022-23 season, Brady is set to receive a tribute from the Patriots during their opening game on Sept. 10, when the team will square off against the Philadelphia Eagles at Gillette Stadium.

Apart from his accomplishments on the gridiron, Brady has also ventured into investment arenas beyond American football. Notably, he acquired minority stakes in the Las Vegas Raiders and Birmingham City, a prominent soccer club competing in England's second-tier league, often referred to as the Championship.
