According to a report by Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, ESPN will be cutting ties with two of its college football staffers ahead of the 2016 season. Joe Schad, who joined the Worldwide Leader back in 2005, will not have his contract renewed. Ditto on Robert Smith, who spent 11 years with the network. Both were featured prominently on College Football Live, College GameDay, SportsCenter and other programs.

There’s no word on whether ESPN plans to replace them.
