It took much longer than expected, but Brian Banks has made it to the National Football League.
The exonerated former high school football player at famed Long Beach Poly High School has accepted a job in the NFL front office, he announced Saturday.
According to the NFL, Banks will be a manager in the football operations department and on game days assist with the officiating department.
And, oh, he's moving to New York.
Banks spent five years in prison and another five years on house arrest after being wrongfully accused of rape by a classmate.
After he was able to get his accuser to admit she lied on tape, Banks was exonerated of all charges.
The Seahawks invited Banks in for minicamp, and he played for the Las Vegas Locomotives in the United Football League in 2012.
