Rich Gannon was one of those NFL players you knew was destined for the booth. Upon his retirement in 2005 after 17 years in the NFL, he immediately joined CBS as an analyst. Four years later, he joined Sirius XM NFL radio and quickly became one of the channel's top voices. Now he has announced he will be leaving Sirus XM.
Going to miss my friends and family and of course our listeners at Sirius XM NFL Radio after 7 great years! What a pleasure!!— Rich Gannon (@RichGannon12) March 29, 2016
Gannon shared the airwaves with Bruce Murray every weekday from 8am to Noon Pacific time.
It is unclear as of now if Gannon has anything else lined up. He is still with CBS (as far as we know), so those who enjoy his analysis during NFL games can still do so.
Though he had a long 17-year career in the NFL including stints in Minnesota and Kansas City, it was the final six in Oakland where he made his legacy. He made four consecutive Pro Bowls in Oakland from 1999-2002, and was named All Pro twice. In 2002, he was named NFL MVP and led the Raiders to the Super Bowl.
