According to ESPN, former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis has joined the network as an NFL analyst and will appear on “NFL Live” and “SportsCenter” and contribute to other platforms, beginning Sept. 1.
Following his retirement from the Steelers in 2006, Bettis was hired by NBC Sports to be a studio commentator for Football Night in America Sunday night pregame show through the 2008 season.
Bettis, the NFL\’s sixth all-time leading rusher, played 10 years with the Steelers. Over the course of his 13 years in the league, he rushed 13,662 yards and 91 touchdowns while catching 200 passes for 1,449 yards and three touchdowns.
In February, Bettis reached the final 10 of the original 15 modern day finalists to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but then was eliminated on the vote to the final five.
