Erin Andrews is leaving ESPN after eight years.

Erin Andrews’ contract with ESPN expires at the end of this month, and the prevailing thought has been that she would re-sign with the network. However, ESPN dropped the news late today that Andrews will not be returning.

Sports Illustrated reports that FOX Sports is actively courting Andrews to take on a prominent role in their college football coverage in 2012. FOX declined to comment, and Andrews' rep says, "We are not in a position to discuss Erin's next career move."

Most believe she'll be working on the network's first regular-season college football coverage in Fall 2012.

Her Wikipedia page has already been updated, perhaps prematurely, that Fox Sports has scooped its next star.
