Mike Martz did some work for NFL Network in 2009 after he left the San Francisco 49ers.

If you recall, that was when he blasted Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler on the air for not being professional. Martz, of course, joined Cutler with the Bears for the next two seasons.

Now, the former head coach of the St. Louis Rams is back in the television business. Martz will be an analyst for games on Fox this season. According to Mike Sando of, Martz will pair with Ron Pitts as the No. 7 crew on Fox. That means they probably will not be working every weekend and when they are in action they might be seeing Martz’s old team the Rams and some other bottom dwellers in the conference like the Vikings and Cardinals.
