13 years after retiring from football, Louis joined ESPN as a football analyst in May 2013. He has been with the network ever since. In the beginning, Louis was a studio analyst. But after spending almost years with the network, around the first half of 2018, his role was expanded to appear on ESPN's Monday Night Football. As per the new role, Louis was to travel to the game sites and impart his insights for the halftime as well as post-game analysis. And at the same time, he kept his previous roles in the network's other shows like NFL Live, Sunday NFL Countdown, NFL Matchup etc.
