First, Jordan Rodgers gets the girl, now he gets the gig.

Rodgers, best known for his turn on the “Bachelorette” and for being the brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, will join ESPN’s SEC Network later this month.

“I’ve devoted my life to football,” Rodgers, who was Vanderbilt’s quarterback from 2010 to 2012, said (via ESPN). “I was never the most talented player on the field. I had to work hard for it and sharing those experiences and that knowledge is my new focus.”

Rodgers, who now is engaged to JoJo Fletcher, thanks to the miracle of TV, tweeted that he said “I do” to the SEC Network gig in May.

“We began planning for the upcoming college football season in February and Jordan was one of our first calls,” said Stephanie Druley, ESPN’s senior vice president. “He had a unique perspective as a quarterback at Vanderbilt University and we were immediately impressed with his intelligence and passion for the game.”
