Skip Bayless to Clear $25M in Deal With Fox Sports
Further news about Skip Bayless' departure from ESPN has surfaced.
After the official announcement from the network, we've gotten word that the sports personality will join Fox Sports ... for a massive payday.
According to SI reporter Richard Deitsch, Bayless has inked a four-year contract with Fox Sports, worth around $22 million. And, if you factor in his signing bonus, Skip will reportedly clear $25 million over the course of his contract -- more than ESPN was prepared to offer.
Well ... damn! Get your money Skip.
Industry sources tell me ESPN will offer around $4M per for Bayless when his contract comes up next summer. https://t.co/L8YuUm5y0h
