CBS Sports has made a big new college football hire.

Barrett Sallee, who most recently worked at Bleacher Report as one of the site's top college football writers, is heading to CBS.

Sallee covered the SEC, which is a major CBS Sports property, while at Bleacher Report.

He also served as a video analyst for the site.

He made the announcement via Twitter this morning.

Sallee also works as a radio host for Sirius XM. Back in February, he was one of the most prominent people affected by large-scale editorial layoffs by Bleacher Report.

He announced his departure from B/R on February 8 on his Facebook page.

News: Tuesday, Feb. 7 was the last day that you'll see content from me under the B/R banner. Due to changes in direction, the need for day-to-day coverage of college football was no longer needed. When I came over from CFN in March 2012, it was a huge risk that paid off tremendously both personally and professionally. The friendships and connections that I've made throughout the course of this journey will forever be cherished.

As for the next steps, you'll still be able to hear me on SEC Smothered and Covered and SiriusXM, and will be able to read and see me somewhere else in the near future.

To all of you who helped us build the B/R CFB department into something special, thank you. My colleagues and I built it, but you are the ones who lived there.

Congratulations to Barrett on the new gig.
