"Former U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper and three-time U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year Kasey Keller will join ESPN as a soccer analyst. Keller, who retired last year after three seasons with Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders, will primarily serve as a studio analyst for select MLS and U.S. Men’s National Team matches, and be part of ESPN’s presentation of the UEFA European Football Championship™ 2012 from June 8 – July 1.

Keller will make his ESPN television debut during the network’s 2012 Major League Soccer season opener – Portland Timbers vs. Philadelphia Union on Monday, March 12, on ESPN2 and ESPN3, live from JELD-WEN Field in Portland, Ore. The former standout professional goalkeeper will continue to serve as the primary analyst for Seattle Sounders matches on regional television.
