One of ESPN's most recognizable National Football League reporters also let go

One of ESPN's most recognizable National Football League reporters also let go”

The well-respected Clayton has served as a senior National Football League writer and commentator at ESPN for 23 years.

On April 26, ESPN laid off dozens of prominent on-air personalities, including Jayson Stark, Ed Werder, Jay Crawford and Dana O'Neil.

This is in reference, of course, to this awesome ESPN commercial from a few years back featuring Clayton.

Can Cleveland Cavaliers Defend Their NBA Championship Title?
An unprecedented Finals trilogy was finally set, and still, James had no interest or energy to engage the topic. The Celtics have their backs against the wall heading into Game 5 on Thursday evening.

Eventually, the man nicknamed "The Professor" was a regular on the national NFL beat for ESPN.

While Clayton will no longer contribute to ESPN he will continue with his local radio show on ESPN 710 Seattle.

Clayton, 63, confirmed he was included in the wave of recent layoffs at the sports network.

GSEB SSC Class 10 result 2017 declared @ gseb.org
The results, announced today, show a wide gap in the performance of students from English-medium and Gujarati-medium schools. A huge number of candidates appeared for the examination across various examination centers in Gujarat.

There has been no official word from Clayton or ESPN, according to the Sporting News story. ESPN and Clayton both declined comment.

John Clayton, who did most of his live shots from his Seattle-area home studio, appeared in perhaps the most famous satirical "This is SportsCenter" commercial ever.

When ESPN was in the midst of massive layoffs last month, we knew that all the names would not be publicly released at the time.

James surpasses Jordan as all-time playoff scoring leader
That's a satisfying lasting impression to have left upon the defending National Basketball Association champions. The Cavaliers reached the NBA Finals once with Brown at the helm but were swept by the San Antonio Spurs .

I am well taken care of by ESPN. In 2007, he received the Dick McCann Memorial Award, a distinction that puts him in the writer's section of the Pro football Hall of Fame.
