Brett McMurphy Announces He's Been Laid Off At ESPN

ESPN has reportedly let go of its biggest college football reporter.

Brett McMurphy, ESPN's top college football reporter, has reportedly been let go by the network in what many are considering a surprising move. McMurphy announced the news himself on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

McMurphy joins what is reported to be close to 100 people from ESPN's on-air talent pool who will be facing layoffs. Earlier in the day, big names such as Ed Werder and Dana O'Neill also announced they'd been let go by the network.

McMurphy spent five years at the Worldwide Leader - coming over from CBS Sports back in 2012. He's also written for the New York Times, The Daily, AOL FanHouse and The Tampa Tribune.

McMurphy is arguably the most dialed-in reporter in the college football world, so it's hard to see him staying unemployed for long. We'll see where he lands soon. We wish him the best.
