STAMFORD, Conn. – Tim Howard will keep doubling as an English Premier League goalkeeper and TV announcer.
The U.S. star will work up to 10 games for NBC Sports Group during the upcoming season on days his EPL team, Everton, isn't playing. He will either serve as a game commentator in the booth or as an on-site studio analyst for high-profile matches.
Howard did seven games for NBCSN last season, and the network announced Tuesday that it signed him to a multiyear deal.
At age 35, Howard is still one of the top goalies in the Premier League, and he showed why at the World Cup. His 16 saves in the Americans' 2-1 loss in extra time to Belgium in the second round made him a social media sensation back home.
