Leinart signed a deal with the Pac-12 Network, making his official debut as a Studio Analyst on August 30, 2014.
He is a recurring guest, via voicemail, on the Barstool Sports podcast Pardon My Take.
Wearing number 7, he was chosen as the Gatorade California high school football player of the year.

Leinart is now merrily enjoying his life with his actress girlfriend, Josie Loren, along with the son they share.
He has been in four celebrity relationships averaging approximately 2.1 years each.
Matthew Stephen Leinart (born May 11, 1983) is a former American football quarterback who now works as a studio analyst for Fox Sports’ college football coverage.
