Major changes are coming to CBS' college football coverage ahead of the 2018 season. We will have a new sideline reporter.

The Athletic's Richard Deitsch reported earlier today that Allie LaForce, who's served as SEC on CBS' sideline reporter for the past couple of years, has decided to leave the network. She reportedly left after failing to reach an agreement on a new contract.

You can read more about that situation here.

This means we're getting a new sideline report. CBS has officially announced that Jamie Erdahl will be taking on LaForce's role.

Erdahl is excited. "This is so amazing. I couldn’t be more excited to join the entire @SEConCBS crew! Can’t wait to work with Brad & Gary — my saturdays just got better. Let’s get to work!" she tweeted.

Erdahl, 29, has been with CBS Sports for a couple of years. She's a Minnesota native and previously worked for NESN in Boston.

Erdahl played softball and basketball for St. Olaf's College before transferring to American University to pursue a career in broadcasting.

Congrats to Jamie!
