First, Bill Simmons. Then, Keith Olbermann. And now, Colin Cowherd?
Cowherd, who has been a part of ESPN Radio's morning show lineup since 2003, is reportedly leaving ESPN. He hasn't revealed what he's going to do next but, according to The Big Lead, Cowherd may be taking his talents to Fox Sports 1. ESPN president John Skipper released a statement a short time ago regarding Cowherd's departure.
"We've enjoyed a mutually beneficial run with Colin for over a decade," Skipper said in the statement. "He came to national prominence on ESPN with his unique perspective on sports and society. Endings also bring new beginnings, for ESPN and Colin, and we thank him and wish him the best."
Cowherd is doing his radio show this morning and hasn't addressed the reports yet. Stay tuned. In the meantime, #TBT to this amazing Cowherd ESPN moment:
