NEW YORK (AP) -Michael Strahan is taking his gap-toothed grin to Fox.
The charismatic former New York Giants defensive end, who retired earlier this month, will join the network's NFL pregame show, a person with knowledge of the hiring confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday. The person requested anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made. Fox is scheduled to hold a news conference Tuesday.
The move was first reported by SI.com.
The 36-year-old Strahan made seven Pro Bowls in his 15 NFL seasons and recorded the fifth most sacks in league history. He went out on top, winning a Super Bowl title in February.
Strahan's agent, Maury Gostfrand, did not return phone messages.
