Awful Announcing also reports that Week 14 is expected to be Fallica’s last GameDay appearance. It is rumored that the GameDay crew will have a send-off for the longtime ESPN employee. Fallica has been with ESPN since 1995.
Fallica’s role on Big Noon Kickoff is expected to be related to sports betting. On GameDay, Fallica is noted for his weekly “Bear’s Board” where he routinely picks a set of key games against the spread. Fallica seems set to be the 2nd ESPN personality to recently leave for FOX, with the other being Tom Rinaldi.
