McGrath announced the news on her Instagram account, including a photo of herself on her first day at ESPN back in 2011.


ESPN confirmed the newsminutes later.

“It is great to welcome Molly back to ESPN,” said senior coordinating producer Lee Fitting. “Versatility is one of her many strengths that will be on display throughout the college football and basketball seasons. She immediately makes our college sports coverage better and we look forward to working with her for years to come.”

McGrath's move is just one of a number of changes ESPN has made to its college football coverage this offseason.
