Quarterback Mark Sanchez is retiring after 10 years in the NFL to join ABC’s college football coverage, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
Sanchez, 32, led the New York Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship Game appearances in the 2009 and 2010 seasons and later played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and most recently the Washington Redskins in 2018.
According to the Post, he will replace Mack Brown in the ABC studio. Brown left to coach at North Carolina.
Sanchez compiled a 37-36 career record, completing 56.6 percent of his passes for 15,357 yards with 86 touchdowns and 89 interceptions.
His best years came with the Jets, who made “The Sanchize” the No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Southern California.
Sanchez set career highs in his third season with New York in 2011, throwing for 3,474 yards and 26 TDs.
He appeared in two games (one start) with Washington last season, completing 19 of 35 passes for 138 yards with three interceptions.
