Last week, the Big Lead broke the news that Colin Cowherd would not be returning to ESPN at the end of his contract. He did not appear on radio the first two days of this week, but returned on Wednesday, and addressed the news, confirming that he was departing ESPN. “Some stuffs been printed, most of it pretty accurate,” Cowherd said of the reports of his leaving.
“It’s amicable,” Cowherd said of his parting with ESPN, and later added, “there’s no animosity, there’s no anger.”
He also discussed–without mentioning his future destination–things like his Sirius radio show, podcast, simulcast, and a book.
“It wasn’t about the money, it was about the funny,” Cowherd said. He then went on to explain that it was about continuing to challenge himself, invoking Bill Parcells and re-inventing himself after a decade.
