Chizik coached Auburn to three bowl victories and the BCS National Championship in 2010, but was fired after a 3-8 season in 2012. He is already co-host of a radio show on SiriusXM.
"Being with ESPN and Sirius/XM, I'm really excited about that and I want to be the best at what I do with TV and radio and being a part of the media," Chizik said to USA Today.
The 52-year-old will primarily appear on the network on Monday and Tuesday nights.
Chizik did not say if he's considering going back into coaching. He has a career record of 38-38 record in six seasons with Iowa State and Auburn.
