BRISTOL, Conn. -- Emmitt Smith is the latest former member of the Cowboys orgaznization to join ESPN.
The former Dallas Cowboys running back has been hired by ESPN as a studio analyst for its NFL pregame coverage. Earlier this month, former Cowboys coach Bill Parcells also joined ESPN.
Smith, the National Football League's all-time leading rusher, will appear on the network's NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown shows. He will also appear as an analyst on ESPN Radio and ESPN.com.
I'm very happy to see this. He and Parcells should be entertaining additions next season.

Awesome. Cowboys bias from a less annoying analyst. WOO!
I seemed to like his work the short while he was on NFLn, so I think he'll be just fine, however it still doesn't solve the problem of the lack of Steve Young on Sunday Morning Countdown. Young is Restless is still the best segment on the show, and it's too bad he's stuck on MNC, because I rarely get to see that pregame show.

I thought it was pretty well widely known that that's what he's doing now. Along those same lines, he's also written this book (lapublishing.com), which of course you can buy at places like Amazon (The W at Amazon).
