On Tuesday ESPN officially announced what sports fans have actually known since January. Some time in the near future, the long-running Mike & Mike show as we know it will end. The network is moving Mike Greenberg over to ESPN, where he will host a new morning show-SportsCenter hybrid. Mike Golic will remain on ESPN radio and ESPN2 and be joined by Trey Wingo.

Greenberg and Golic addressed the issue for the first time on the air Wednesday morning. Both of them were totally professional about everything. However, Golic’s comments did suggest that he is not in favor of the switch.

“The last year and a half have been somewhat interesting, if not eyebrow raising as well,” Golic explained. “For me, it’s not my story to tell. I’m going to continue doing this exact same show. It’s for others to tell who made this decision, if they want to tell it and how they want to tell it.”

Golic’s son, Jake Golic, was a lot less diplomatic. A few hours after his dad addressed the move on the air, Jake got on Twitter and fired off a series of angry tweets directed at ESPN.

Take a look:

Mike Golic probably would have preferred Jake not go on Twitter and bash his employer. But hey, at least he knows his kid has his back.
