ESPN College Football analyst Todd McShay has announced that he will be temporarily stepping away from the sidelines to focus on his health and his family.

  • McShay made the announcement on his Twitter account today:

  • The decision comes just a few days after McShay gave a sideline report during Saturday’s Alabama-Miami game that had fans worried about his health.
  • McShay exited a broadcast last year due to illness, though specifics were never disclosed. He returned for the remainder of the games for the 2020 season.
  • ESPN issued a statement on Twitter offering their support for McShay’s decision.

  • It’s unclear how much time McShay will miss, but we certainly hope for a healthy return to the sidelines soon.
