Veteran sportscaster Mike Tirico is leaving ESPN for NBC Sports.

The departure of Tirico, voice of ESPN’s Monday Night Football since 2006, was first reported by Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Daily.

Tirico’s role with NBC Sports was not immediately clear. NBC “Sunday Night Football” play-by-play legend Al Michaels is under contract though 2017.

Street & Smith’s reported veteran sportscaster Sean McDonough is a leading contender to take Tirico’s slot on “MNF.”
