Former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka has been all over television sets recently, from his weekly appearances on ESPN to his impassioned speech at the halftime of the Bears’ victory over the Dallas Cowboys when the organization retired his No. 89 jersey in December.
Appearances directly related to football aside, Ditka has also tapped into another market, as he has appeared in a slew of commercials for various companies.
Perhaps nothing will be bigger though than what Ditka could be up to for The Grammy’s later this month. Here is a teaser:

Of course, this isn’t the only ad that Ditka has been featured in recently. There was his role in a State Farm ad starring Da Superfans and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers:
