During the first episode of VH1’s ‘Baller Wives” last week, Michael Vick’s wife Kijafa teased him that since he left the NFL, he had nothing to do except play golf and video games.

Vick now has a part-time gig: Fox Sports has hired him as an NFL game analyst.

He will be part of “FOX NFL Kickoff,” the show that leads into “Fox NFL Sunday.” The former Falcons quarterback will also make regular appearances on FS1 studio shows.

“I’m very excited,” Vick told USA Today Sports in a phone interview on Friday. “Over the last seven or eight months, I’ve done a lot of interviews, and I think I’ve gotten better as I’ve been put in those situations more often. Things really came together (with Fox) over the last couple months. They have shows that I have always watched and admired. My friends and family are thankful and proud of me.”
