It isn't an NFL head coaching gig or even a Premier Lacrosse League defensive coordinator position, but Bill Belichick has found another football job.

On Thursday, it was announced that Belichick would be joining the crew of "Inside the NFL" as an analyst.

"I'm thrilled to join my new team at NFL Films and to work on such a historic television franchise. I've always appreciated 'Inside the NFL's' depth of analysis, and I hope to bring the same detailed insight to The CW by talking real football with real pros – Ryan (Clark), Chris (Long) and Chad (Johnson) – this coming season."

"Inside the NFL" first aired in 1977, when Bill Belichick was only in his third year of pro coaching as the wide receivers coach & tight ends coach for the Detroit Lions. The show will air on The CW this season. Belichick is slated to make his debut on Aug. 30.

Belichick has teamed up with former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee to appear on The Pat McAfee Show's NFL draft stream this past April, and he is expected to appear weekly on the show on Mondays this fall.

Two of the former players on the panel played for Belichick - Chad Johnson and Chris Long. Johnson played in New England in 2011, posting career lows in the final season of his career at age 33. Long played one season for the Patriots in 2016, winning Super LI under Belichick. Long would sign with the Philadelphia Eagles for the following season, helping the Eagles beat Belichick in Super Bowl LII.

Meanwhile, former Pittsburgh Steeler Ryan Clark has dedicated his post-playing career to being a full-time Patriots hater. After Robert Kraft pushed Belichick out of the door, maybe the pair can find some common ground there.
