Tony Romo is anticipating a steep learning curve as he transitions to his new role as a color commentator for CBS.
Romo retired from professional football on April 4, marking an end to a career exclusively spent with the Dallas Cowboys. The 37-year-old was named to the Pro Bowl four times and holds several team records.
Now in the offseason, Romo attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open and compared improving his golf game to entering a new venture in the broadcast booth.
“That’s the same thing in broadcasting,” Romo said via Drew Davison of The Star-Telegram. “I understand I’m coming in without any experience in that world. It’s exciting, it’s a little nerve-wracking, it’s all these things in one. That’s why you love to do things. You’re coming into the unknown and something I have to get better at and I like a challenge. I know I’ll probably stink for a while (in the broadcast booth). Hopefully I’ll continue to improve at that and hopefully get better and be good.”
Romo emerged from relative obscurity as an undrafted free agent to become one of the most prolific quarterbacks in Cowboys history and with that in mind, it’d be no surprise if he turns into one of the NFL’s premier broadcasters in due time.
