Millen Joins ESPN

Bristol, CT - Matt Millen is a lot more popular as a broadcaster than he was as an NFL executive.

The architect of the league's first 0-16 team is joining ESPN as a football analyst. He was a successful commentator at CBS and Fox before taking over the Detroit Lions in 2001 - and leading them to one of the worst eight-year stretches in NFL history.
ESPN said Thursday that Millen will call college football games and appear on NFL studio shows. He served as a guest analyst with NBC during last season's playoffs after the Lions fired him in September.
ESPN executive vice president Norby Williamson calls Millen ``one of the absolute best analysts in the business.''
Millen was on four Super Bowl championship teams during his 12-year NFL career.
