Former NFL running back LeSean McCoy has reportedly emerged as a candidate to replace Shannon Sharpe on the flagship Fox Sports show Undisputed, but he isn’t the only person up for the job.
The two-time Super Bowl winner currently stars on FS1’s Speak alongside Joy Taylor and Emmanuel Acho.
Coincidentally, they are also emerging as candidates as well. Rising Fox Sports star Nick Wright is also believed to be in the running.
Bayless will reportedly have the final say on who replaces Sharpe on Undisputed rejecting anyone who would challenge him. Shannon Sharpe is expected to end his seven-year run on the show after the 2023 NBA Finals.
Reports claim the NFL Hall-of-Famer’s departure comes amid a breakdown in his relationship with Bayless. The two of them have not been seeing eye-to-eye, most notably after Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field and Skip seemed more concerned about the league canceling the game than the player and his health.
Sharpe is yet to confirm he’s leaving Undisputed but he has liked several tweets mentioning his rumored split from FS1.
Amid his departure is him teasing a new career venture in a cryptic post last week, telling fans: “Stay tuned for the seeds I’m planting.”
