Fantasy football guru Matthew Berry is available to be picked up after he and ESPN parted ways following contract renewal talks.
Berry, 52, and ESPN jointly announced that they are separating after 15 years together. Berry was a senior fantasy sports analyst for ESPN, appearing on TV and radio, while also writing for ESPN.com.
He was a lead member of ESPN2’s Sunday morning program “Fantasy Football Now.” He has 1.1 million Twitter followers.
“ESPN gave me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to write and talk fantasy sports on every possible ESPN platform,” Berry wrote on Twitter. “On a personal level, ESPN is where I made lifelong friends, met my wife, and started my family. I am forever indebted to ESPN.”
The network also released a statement, saying Berry is “dedicated and talented, and we wish him the best in his next endeavor.”
