BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Retired New England Patriots safety and three-time Super Bowl Champion Devin McCourty has found a new gig.

NBC Sports announced Tuesday that McCourty will be an analyst for "Football Night in America," the pregame show for NBC's Sunday Night Football.

McCourty excitedly tweeted about his upcoming role, writing, "MAMA I MADE IT…so excited to join the team!!!"

McCourty played his entire career for the Patriots, winning three Super Bowls, earning All-Pro honors three times, and making the Pro Bowl twice. He also owns the NFL record for most postseason starts for a defensive player (24). He announced his retirement on March 10 following the conclusion of his 13th professional season.

"It’s rare when you have the opportunity to add a three-time Super Bowl-winner to your team, and we’re excited to welcome Devin McCourty to Football Night following an incredible NFL career," said Sam Flood, Executive Producer and President, Production for NBC Sports, in a press release. "Devin is a leader in every sense of the word, both on and off the field, and his dynamic personality and passion for the game will be a great addition to the show."

"I'm excited to be a rookie on the best team in America again," McCourty said in the same release. "I'm very grateful for this opportunity from NBC Sports to learn from great individuals, chase new goals and provide viewers with my thoughts on the biggest games every week."

McCourty's twin brother, Jason McCourty, is currently a co-host on "Good Morning Football" on NFL Network after retiring from the NFL in 2021.
