Hines Ward joins NBC

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is joining NBC Sports to work as an analyst on both college and pro football.

Ward, who retired recently after his release by the Steelers, will serve as a studio analyst during NBC's college football telecasts on Saturdays and will be part of the network's pre- and post-game studio work on Sundays as well.

“I am really excited! It's not everyday that you get the chance to work for a powerhouse like the NBC Sports Group,” Ward said in the release. “It is a big honor for me and I am looking forward to making the most of this great opportunity.”
