Today was a very busy day in the world of sports media in terms of personalities changing affilations. The most noteworthy of the bunch was CBS college basketball writer Jeff Goodman, who will be heading to ESPN. Goodman leaves CBS for a more enhanced role on television with ESPN. Last year, ESPN shrewdly hired Brett McMurphy away from CBS on the college football front. McMurphy's hiring immediately paid dividends with the chaos surrounding realignment and the Big East split.
In other media news, USA Today NFL columnist Mike Garafolo is heading to Fox Sports 1. I'd assume he'd be a part of the Curt Menefee/Jay Glazer Fox Football Daily program, but his hiring is another coup for Fox, who is clearly going all-in and attempting to knock ESPN from their pedestal.no comments
