Skip Bayless Leaving ESPN

Skip Bayless

His crazy arguments on ESPN's First Take are entertaining, but its coming to an end, because Skip Bayless is leaving the show.

ESPN released a statement this week, announcing that the sports personality is leaving the network altogether, when his current contract expires this summer.

"Skip Bayless has decided to leave ESPN when his contract expires at the end of August," the network states. "We want to thank Skip for his many contributions to ESPN. His hard work and talent have benefited ESPN for 12 years."

ESPN also revealed that his final appearance on First Take will be the day after the NBA Finals conclude.

At press time, there's no official word on what Bayless' plans are next, but reports say he will likely land at Fox Sports 1.
