Fox Sports 1 has hired Andy Roddick, who will join the network as a co-host of Fox Sports Live, SI.com reports. Roddick said that he has taken a near full-time position and will appear on Fox Sports Live nightly between Monday and Friday, working either four or five nights a week. The new show, which is aiming to compete with ESPN’s SportsCenter, will debut in August.

"Throughout the interview process I was very honest," Roddick said. "I was the way I have always been: Pretty direct and pretty opinionated. I think that's what they were looking for. I don't know if they were looking for a typical, run-of-the-mill type of show or someone with fabricated opinions.

"The last thing I am going to try to do is try to think I know more than someone who makes decisions as a head coach in the NFL. I don't think I will be the guy questioning Bill Belichick's coaching decisions in the fourth quarter. I think that's stupidity. But I think I can give a decent look on the preparation side of athletes, the business side and maybe what they are thinking going into a big situation or moment."
