Trey Wingo was a mainstay in ESPN's NFL Draft coverage for years, but the longtime sports host is no longer with the network.

However, Wingo will still be part of the 2021 NFL Draft.

According to a report from Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Wingo will be hosting an NFL Draft coverage special for Fox Sports.

Wingo left ESPN at the end of 2020 following a multi-decade run with the company. He had been with ESPN since 1997 and had several notable roles at the network. Among those roles was hosting the NFL Draft, which he often received praise for.

While Wingo is no longer with ESPN, he will still be part of the 2021 NFL Draft coverage.

From the report:

Wingo, who hosted the draft for ESPN the past few years, will lead Fox Sports’ coverage as it produces a draft party across its digital and social media platforms during the first round on Thursday.

Fox Sports will have an array of analysts working with Wingo. A source said that Eli Manning could be part of the program. Fox Sports confirmed the show would be airing, but declined to confirm the details.

The 2021 NFL Draft is set to begin on Thursday night. This year's NFL Draft will broadcast live from Cleveland, Ohio.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have the No. 1 overall pick.
