Former NFL quarterback Matt Leinart is joining Pac-12 Networks as a college football analyst. 

Pac-12 Networks issued a press release on Leinart's hiring on its official website on Aug. 28:

"Pac-12 Networks announced today that former USC (Trojans) quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart has joined its on-air roster as a studio analyst to bolster its already experienced talent lineup this fall. 

"Leinart will make his Pac-12 Networks debut on Saturday, August 30, joining Mike Yam, Rick Neuheisel and Curtis Conway for Pac-12 Networks' pregame, halftime and postgame show coverage in Week 1. The team will provide highlights, recaps and analysis of all the action around the Pac-12 and throughout the college football landscape. 

"In addition to his gameday duties on Saturdays, Leinart will appear on the Networks' series Pac-12 Football Weekly and will also be featured in the Networks' bowl game and spring football coverage. 

"The Santa Ana native achieved several impressive milestones as USC's starting quarterback from 2003-05, including 2004 Heisman Trophy honors and a Rose Bowl victory against (the) Michigan (Wolverines). That same season, he became USC's first junior to win the Heisman and led the team to its second consecutive national championship. He is only the third quarterback in the last 30 years to lead his team to back-to-back national titles. Leinart was 37-2 as a starter, and ranks third on USC's career passing (807 completions, 10,693 yards) and total offense charts (10,623 yards). 

"Following his career at USC, Leinart was drafted 10th overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. He continued his professional football career for six years with the Cardinals, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders." 

Leinart placed No. 1 in People With Money's top 10 highest-paid football players "with an estimated $46 million in combined earnings," per an August 29 update from MediaMass.net's Carol Kearney:

"It's been a rough year for the footballer, but at least he has his millions of dollars to ease the pain. (Thirty-one-year-old) Matt Leinar has taken the No. 1 spot on People With Money's top 10 highest-paid footballers for 2014 with an estimated $46 million in combined earnings.

"In 2012 it looked like the footballer's spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (August 28) that Leinart is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between July 2013 and July 2014, a nearly $20 million lead over his closest competition.

"In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

"The American footballer has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the 'Fat Leinart Burger' chain) in Washington, a football team (the 'Santa Ana Angels'), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderleinart - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Matt) and a fashion line called 'Matt Leinart Seduction.'"
