Former Canadian Football League Player Now Bull Riding Announcer

NEW YORK - Former CFL and NFL receiver Rocket Ismail has a new job as a television announcer for bull riding.

Ismail, who began his pro career with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts before heading to the NFL, will serve as a correspondent for some of the Professional Bull Riders telecasts on cable channel Versus. He became interested in the sport when he took part in "Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge" on CMT.

Ismail will interview riders about their lives outside of competition, making his debut during Saturday's broadcast from Fresno, Calif.

The former Notre Dame star played nine seasons in the NFL, making 363 catches for 5,295 yards and 28 touchdowns.
