Erin Andrews Out at ESPN; Reportedly Heading for Fox (and Pac 12 Coverage?)

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch is reporting that ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews is out at the WWL and is reportedly heading for Fox Sports.

Writes Deitsch:

SI.com has learned that Fox Sports is aggressively pursuing ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews for a role at its network. The network's executives recently met with Andrews regarding a major role in Fox's college football coverage.

Fox has invested heavily in college football over the last 24 months, including entering a 12-year agreement with the Pac-12 this year covering broadcast, national and local cable, and digital assets. They'll air a minimum of eight regular-season football games on FOX Sports, and at least four in primetime. Last year Fox Sports and the Big 12 Conference reached a 13-year agreement for exclusive cable rights to 40 football games per season.

My take: I've always thought that Andrews was perfectly fine and well-suited to the sideline reporter role. (Whether or not sideline reporters are necessary is another question.) Coaches and players seem to respond to her and to the extent that we care what a coach says as he's walking off the field or court at halftime, that's all we can hope for from a sideline reporter.

If she ends up doing a lot of UCLA and Pac 12 games, I have no problem with it.
