Well none of those guys you named from ESPN were NFL analysts. Rush Limbaugh and Michael Irvin show that you really have to do something bad or say something controversial in order to get fired from there. Sterling Sharpe got axed because he wasn't as "flamboyant" as Michael Irvin.
I'm saying Young's job security is pretty good short of him saying something un-PC, sexist, racist, or whatever, or doing something that might result in jail time or a trial. Considering Young is a "nice Mormon boy" I don't really think that's going to be an issue.
And although Young is far from being poor, it would probably be a stretch that some things are motivated by money. I mean, when you hear players saying all the time now that they want their salaries increased from $3 million to $6 million because "they have to provide for their family," I think you can see that being rich doesn't make your desire to be richer any less.
And if he wanted to coach, going for a job as a talking head on any of the networks is not the best way of doing it. Sure, after being out of the game for almost 7 years, he may decide to make a career change. But is that exactly a good hire? I think a guy that was wanting to coach at the outset of his retirement may have a bit more passion than someone who has had a 7-year lay-off and besides watching a few hours of gametape each week has done not a ton to enhance his general and overall knowledge of the game in that span.
Short of the guys that were coaches before they went onto TV, I can't think of many TV analysts that were able to land a coaching job. I know Sean Salisbury got offered one, but he turned down Denny Green (probably because he realized the same thing I said before, a downgrade in pay and have significantly weaker job security is not exactly a brilliant career move).
