Tom Rinaldi is leaving ESPN and moving to Fox Sports, the New York Post reports.
Rinaldi, who joined ESPN in 2002, was best known for his outstanding features on College GameDay. Rinaldi is expected to have roles on Fox’s major events, including the Super Bowl.
As OutKick’s Bobby Burack reported in August, ESPN had several talents whose contracts expired this year. The re-sign vs. loss lists do not come out favorably for ESPN.
In addition to Rinaldi, Will Cain, Adam Amin, Jonathan Vilma, and Emmanuel Acho have left ESPN. The first four have proven to be losses. Rinaldi will next. ESPN re-signed Katie Nolan, Keyshawn Johnson, Marcus Spears, Bomani Jones, Sarah Spain, Field Yates, and Pablo Torre.
