Dan Orlovsky will forever be known for the moment he ran out of bounds, taking a safety while being chased by Jared Allen during the Detroit Lions’ win-less 2008 season. It’s a play that’s considered to be one of the worst in Lions history and one that has followed him since.

You probably didn’t know it, but Orlovsky spent 12 years in the league, spanning five teams and 12 starts, before he hung up his cleats for good in 2017. Now he transitions to his new profession.

ESPN has hired the former QB as a football analyst, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports. The Worldwide leader in Sports is said to be planning to use Orlovsky primarily in its college football studio, but he will also have some NFL responsibilities.

Orlovsky went 2-10 as a starter, with 3,132 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions during his career.
