Bentley worked as part of the The NFL on Fox broadcast team for four years from 1998 to 2001, doing both color commentary and play-by-play. He left Fox for a position as head coach and general manager of the Arena Football League's Buffalo Destroyers, and held that position for two years before resigning.
From 2003 to 2006, Bentley was a color commentator alongside play-by-play man Bob Papa on NBC's Arena Football League coverage, and since 2007 has served in that capacity for ESPN/ABC. In 2007, Bentley returned to the Buffalo Bills as a play-by-play announcer for their preseason television games, a role he still serves. He is also an advisory member for the revival of the USFL.
From 2009 to present, Bentley is a radio personality on 107.3 in Grand Rapids MI. Ray is currently a defensive coordinator for the high school team Byron Center Bulldogs.
