Watt shared a video giving some pointers to those who are ready to start a new job, joking about this new opportunity in his career.
Multiple networks were reportedly after Watt, who once commented that he would never do such a thing.
Watt later admitted that he was too in love with the game to stay away for long, so he wanted to be close to football in any way possible.
Notably, this is a much safer environment for someone who was once one of the most dangerous players in the league in his heyday.
He spent 12 years in the league, earning five All-Pro selections and logging 69 sacks between 2012 and 2015 alone.
He was quite close to being named MVP in 2014 and earned three NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards, which is tied for most with Aaron Donald and Lawrence Taylor.
Watt also became a pillar of the community for his charity work in Houston, and he’s one of the most beloved and respected professional athletes of the past couple of decades.
It seemed like he still had something left after logging double-digit sacks in the last year of his career.
Now, he’ll get to share his knowledge and sense of humor with thousands of fans tuning in every week.NEXT: Analyst Names 1 Player As 'Most Important Factor' On Cowboys Offense
