Aikman, who is leaving FOX Sports after 20 years, might not be the only one gone as Andrew Marchand of the New York Post says ESPN might go after Aikman’s partner of around 20 years, Joe Buck.
And what about Erin Andrews?
“I mean, no, I don’t want those guys to leave me are you kidding?” the FOX sideline reporter recently told The Spun. “This has been the best career move I’ve ever made in my life and those guys are like my brothers or my best friends.”
Andrews – the highest-profile sideline reporter in the history of the industry – is also on an expiring contract. She could very well be headed out as well.
“I tell them everything and we have the best time,” Andrews said.
Aikman’s deal now figures to at least match the reported 10-year, $180 million contract fellow former Cowboys QB Tony Romo has with CBS Sports. Aikman was a three-time Super Bowl champ as a player, has broadcast six Super Bowls and earned multiple Emmy Award nominations for his broadcasting work.
He will be a welcome addition to ESPN.
