Jordan Rodgers kicked off his first week with the SEC Network on Monday, and his fiancée, JoJo Fletcher, commemorated the occasion with a supportive message and sweet snapshot on Instagram.

"So proud of this boy right here," the 25-year-old former Bachelorette captioned a pic of the cute couple. "Not only is he the most loving, kindhearted and selfless man.. But also unbelievably hardworking and driven. Congrats on your first week w/ the SEC Network bubbi! You deserve it."

Fresh off of winning Fletcher's heart -- and the 11th season of The Bachelorette -- Rodgers was hired by ESPN to serve as a college football analyst for the SEC Network's sports news program, SEC Now.

The 27-year-old reality star -- whose brother is Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- had a successful college football career in the SEC as the quarterback for Vanderbilt University.

Rodgers shared a photo from the SEC Now anchor desk, and called back to his time playing college ball when comparing his new gig to being out on the field.

"Fun day back in the SEC," he wrote in the caption. "Much easier without 100k screaming fans and giant angry men trying to kill me...but only slightly."

When ESPN first announced they'd hired Rodgers for the SEC Network, the reality star faced a lot of blowback from some of his fellow Bachelorette suitors, who accused him of signing on to the dating show just to get noticed.

ESPN Senior Vice President Stephanie Druley later defended the hiring, explaining to Sports Illustrated, "He didn't need the show to get our attention… We waited until the show was a few weeks into its run before we made an offer… the fact that my group had spent time with Jordan made us confident in the decision."
