ESPN's College Football Coverage Is Going To Look A Lot Different

Several of ESPN's college football analysts and reporters and writers have been laid off.

The big layoffs everyone feared were coming to ESPN arrived today. According to various reports, roughly 100 front-facing employees are out at the company.

While the layoffs have hit everything from SportsCenter to Baseball Tonight to ESPN.com, perhaps no aspect of ESPN was hit harder than its college football coverage.

ESPN college football insider Brett McMurphy, the go-to college football breaking news reporter at the company, is out.

Danny Kanell, the co-host of Russillo & Kanell and a college football analyst across ESPN's platforms, is also out.

So, too, are several of ESPN's college football writers.

Jeremy Crabtree, who had covered college football recruiting for several years, is gone, too.

Our thoughts are with everyone at ESPN who's been laid off.

The company's college football coverage is certainly going to look a lot different going forward.
