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
