You knew he would get a job running his mouth, as it was one of the things he was good at as head coach of the Baltimore Ravens. Developing a quarterback? Nah. Brian Billick would rather talk up the media and invent stupid slogans like ‘Festivus Maximus.’
So now he’s been hired by Fox Sports to be an in-game analyst. His partner has yet to be named, but there’s sure to be no shortage of “I’m too smart for this job” remarks.
Between Brian Billick on television and Jason Whitlock online, Fox perhaps might have a real shot at its 2008 summer goal, supplanting ESPN as the most hated sports news outlet in the world.
