A longtime ESPN personality is no longer with the company.
Earlier this year, ESPN laid off over 100 staffers in a move that rocked the media landscape. Just this week, Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch reported that the company is planning to lay off nearly 100 more after Thanksgiving.
Longtime ESPN personality Jonathan Coachman announced that he is no longer with the company, but it’s unclear when he decided to leave.
It does appear he was not a part of the layoffs in April, and he clearly won’t be a part of the layoffs coming this fall.
Here’s a series of tweets from Coachman found by Awful Announcing.
Yes I️ will be. Several projects in the works. When I️ can discuss I️ will. But it was just time to leave espn. Professional and personal reasons. But I️ feel great and this show is for fun and to stay sharp. https://t.co/zw0Y9omDUj

The SportsCenter host was with the company for nine years.
