Supermodel Marisa Miller has been named the NFL's new spokesperson in an odd, but totally smart marketing move, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Guess Jenn Sterger wasn't available.
"I am so excited to have this incredible opportunity to partner with the NFL," Miller said in a statement. "I've grown up watching football my whole life."
Guys may actually want to watch the NFL now!
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model turned NFL "SuperFan" will start by promoting the London matchup between the 49ers and Broncos on Halloween.
"Going to the U.K. for this is going to be a blast," she says. "I'm looking forward to gaining new fans and show them how incredible American football is!"
Somehow we don't think that'll be a problem (see THG's gallery of Marisa Miller pictures), but it's an interesting, somewhat controversial hire for the NFL.
Using sex appeal to promote the league may seem hypocritical in light of the NFL's obsession with its image. Oh well. Click to enlarge the pics below!
