A longtime ESPN on-air personality is leaving the company at the end of this week. Marcellus Wiley is heading to FS1.

The news of Wiley's move was reported last month by Sporting News’ Michael McCarthy. Wiley has been with the Worldwide Leader for 11 years.

He currently hosts “SportsNation” with LZ Granderson and Cari Champion. Wiley also co-hosts a radio show, “Afternoons on ESPNLA with Marcellus Wiley and Travis Rogers.”

At FS1, he is expected to work with Jason Whitlock on “Speak for Yourself,” which airs 5-6 p.m. ET daily.

"After 11 amazing yrs. filled w/laughs, debates & even tears, this is my last week working @espn & @espnlosangeles," Wiley tweeted. "My gratitude runs deep for every executive, co-host, co-worker & fan on this journey. Going to miss it all, but I am so excited to create many more media memories!"

The 43-year-old Wiley played 10 years in the NFL, retiring following the 2006 season.

He's also known for his Ivy League education, having graduated from Columbia.

He will join Colin Cowherd, Jason Whitlock, Skip Bayless, Chris Broussard and Erin Andrews as prominent ESPN personalities to bolt for Fox in recent years.
