Football Analyst, ESPN/ACC Network
Former NFL quarterback Tim Hasselbeck joined ESPN in August 2008. He appears year-round on SportsCenter, Get Up, NFL Live and ESPN Radio. During NFL Sundays, Hasselbeck also provides post-game analysis on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt. Additionally, since 2019 he has served as a commentator for ACC Network Primetime Football alongside Dave O’Brien and Katie George.
Previously at ESPN, Hasselbeck was an analyst on Fantasy Football Now, Fantasy Football Kickoff and the Monday edition of NFL PrimeTime (now NFL Rewind).
Hasselbeck spent six seasons (2002-07) in the NFL as a player, most notably with the Washington Football Team (2003-04) and New York Giants (2005-06), where he served as a backup to Eli Manning. Originally signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2001, Hasselbeck also played in one game for the Arizona Cardinals in 2007.
Hasselbeck was among the first group of active players to participate in the NFL’s “Broadcast Boot Camp” at NFL Films during the summer of 2007. The seminar paid immediate dividends as Hasselbeck made his television debut in September 2007 as an analyst during a Cardinals-Ravens game on FOX. He also served as an analyst for SportsNet New York and contributed to Sirius NFL Radio.
Hasselbeck and his wife, Elisabeth – former co-host of Fox & Friends and ABC Daytime’s The View, participated in an on-air job swap in 2010 that featured Tim on The View and Elisabeth occupying her husband’s analyst role on NFL Live at ESPN.
A native of Norfolk, Mass., Hasselbeck is the son of former NFL tight end Don Hasselbeck and brother of former NFL quarterback and fellow ESPN NFL analyst Matt Hasselbeck. The Hasselbeck brothers have teamed up on NFL Live and in the broadcast booth to analyze the NC State-Louisville game in October 2017.
Hasselbeck was a two-year starter at Boston College, and he graduated in 2001 with a degree in Marketing from the Carroll School of Management.
