Mark Sanchez retires from NFL for high-profile ESPN job
Quarterback Mark Sanchez is putting away his helmet and heading to ABC/ESPN to be a college football analyst, The Post has learned.

Sources tell The Post the former Jets quarterback’s main job will be in ABC’s lead college football studio, where he will join Kevin Negandhi and Jon Vilma. Sanchez is replacing Mack Brown, who left to coach North Carolina.

Sanchez, 32, played 10 years in the NFL, beginning his career by going to back-to-back AFC Championships and playing well enough to inspire his coach, Rex Ryan, to ink a tattoo of Ryan’s wife wearing Sanchez’s No. 6 jersey. Ryan is also an ESPN football analyst.

After the strong first two seasons, Sanchez’s pro career went downhill and he may be most remembered for the “butt fumble.” In a Thanksgiving game against the Patriots in 2012, Sanchez ran into the backside of offensive lineman Brandon Moore. ESPN replayed the blooper endlessly.

first Ryan Leaf and now Dirty Sanchez ... guess ESPN is trying to corner the market on crap QB's turned "experts"

whose next? Cade McClown?

:?
I missed that story, somehow.
Well, maybe "missed" is the wrong word.

Scratch that name from the pool to replace Daniel next year, I guess. Who is left?
