Jason Whitlock's run at Outkick The Coverage is over and done with. Clay Travis announced today that Whitlock would be leaving the site in an article posted on Saturday.

"As a result of the growth of Outkick, Jason’s profile has also grown immensely and he now wishes to carve his own career path as opposed to being a partner at Outkick."

Whitlock joined Outkick in June after leaving Fox Sports. He was an official partner of Travis', but in the article above Travis notes Whitlock is no longer a partner at the company.

Whitlock's absence from Outkick has been noticeable over the last month; the last article attributed to his byline came on December 18. Yesterday, Whitlock guest-wrote a piece for in the wake of the chaotic events that took place this week.

Whitlock has spent most of his recent career at Fox, from 2007-2013 and then a second stint from 2015-2020, predominately as host of Speak For Yourself. He has yet to make a statement on his exit from Outkick.

Whitlock is a big brand name, but it's anybody's guess where he goes from here.

UPDATE: Whitlock tweeted the below on Saturday afternoon.
