TUKWILA, Wash. (AP) -- Kasey Keller is moving from the field to the broadcast booth.

The Seattle Sounders announced on Tuesday that Keller will become the analyst on all radio and television broadcasts for the 2012 season. Keller will join new play-by-play announcer Ross Fletcher, who was hired to replace Arlo White. White has moved on to become the lead play-by-play announcer for NBC Sports coverage of the MLS.

Keller retired as a player following last season at age 41. He spent the final three years of his career playing for the Sounders and was voted the MLS goalkeeper of the year in his final professional season.

Fletcher has spent the last five years working as a soccer commentator and reporter for the BBC.
