Abby Wambach has signed a multi-year agreement to join ESPN in a wide-ranging role. Soccer’s all-time international goal scorer will launch a bi-weekly podcast later this month called Fearless Conversation with Abby Wambach. This summer she will cover men’s European Championship and the Olympic Games. The announcement by ESPN did not specifically say Wambach will be covering soccer during the Olympics.

“My soccer career has provided me with a lot of different experiences that brings more than Xs and Os to the table,” Wambach said in a story posted on espn.com. “I’m excited to join ESPN and to have the opportunity to tell stories that transcend soccer.”

Wambach will also be a contributor to ESPN Films, E:60 and Outside the Lines.

After helping the United States win the World Cup last summer, Wambach retired at the end of the Victory Tour. In the time since she announced she would campaign for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. And she pleaded guilty to a DUII charge after being arrested late night in downtown Portland.
