College Football Analyst Danny Kanell Is Out At ESPN

ESPN is laying off around 100 employees today, and a major college football personality is one of them.

College football analyst and ESPN radio host Danny Kanell is out at the Worldwide Leader.

Kanell confirmed the news on Twitter moments ago.

Earlier, he appeared to hint at the coming news with a cryptic tweet this morning.

Kanell has been with ESPN since 2010 covering college football and has co-hosted Russillo and Kanell with Ryen Russillo on ESPN Radio since September 2015.

It is unclear what will happen with Russillo and Kanell moving forward. As for Kanell himself, he will likely land on his feet. Given his extensive experience as an analyst and on radio, not to mention the fact he was an NFL quarterback for nearly a decade, someone will scoop him up.

In the meantime, another big name is gone in what has been a really tough day for sports media.
