A memo from the editors (mediabistro.com) says he'll take a larger role at ESPN. He had been with the paper for almost 32 years.

As a former newspaper guy, I recognize the departure is a blow to the paper, but he's clearly an engaging TV presence, and his NBA work on ABC is solid. This makes sense.

Also, if he could work a regular ESPN.com column like Sports Guy, he could compete as that network's online basketball guy.

I'm shocked that he was still with the paper. He and Tony have been doing local TV for about 15-20 years already with The Redskins report and whatever they call the Wizards show.

I assumed he already took one of the many buyouts that the Post has offered over the years.

Well, he was already an ESPN employee first and a WAPO employee second for a few years now. This just makes it official.

Adios, Mayor McCheese.

You will not be missed from the Post (anyway).

He's another one I'll really miss. I certainly found some of his later work to be hit or miss, but his early and mid career writing was some of the very best in the genre and stuff that I loved reading.
