After three years in the NFL, former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy has retired and will be joining the SEC Network as a football analyst.

McElroy will join Jesse Palmer, Tim Tebow and commentators Paul Finebaum, Brent Musburger and Joe Tessitore.

Here is what McElroy had to say Per about possibly having to interview his former coach, Nick Saban:

"I must say, I've always watched his press conferences and I've always gotten a kick out of them," he said. "I look forward to being on the other side."
In regards to covering all SEC including Auburn, McElroy said he would be professional and unbiased:

"I hope they know that when I go down there, I'll be going with a very professional manner," McElroy said. "I'll be going to cover the game and be unbiased and tell what I really think. I think the world of every one of those schools and there's not one school I like more than any other. Of course, I went to the University of Alabama and I loved my time there, but at this point going forward, I'll have an unbiased opinion and will enjoy covering the game in a neutral way."
