Last week, the Pac-12 Networks announced that Matt Leinart would join its on-air roster as a studio analyst. Combined with the fact that Leinart has also become a contributor to Fox Sports Live on Fox Sports 1 and it appears that the Heisman Trophy winner at USC and journeyman NFL quarterback has shucked the playing career in favor of joining media and the “Dark Side.”
It’s not as a quarterback however. The former first round pick of the Arizona Cardinals, is in a new commercial for Dish Network that will debut in a few weeks and features Brian Bosworth and Heath Shuler along with Leinart.
The former Heisman Trophy winner is seated in a booth on the right side of the frame and delivers a nice one-liner.

Brian Bosworth, Matt Leinart, and Heath Shuler were all excellent college football players, but they faltered when it came to their NFL careers.

Matt Leinart is in the gossip pages after he allegedly turned out to be the unnamed guy exchanging explicit text messages with The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard.
High expectations go along with the winning the Heisman Trophy, but in many cases, a stellar college career doesn’t always continue into the pros. This is by no means a top 10 list; we left a few deserving others off, but look at it more as a subtle reminder that all that glitters in college is not NFL gold.
