Former Detroit Lions GM Matt Millen Leaving ESPN for Fox Sports
One of the most hated figures in Detroit sports history will continue to ruin your college football experience next season.
Former Detroit Lions general manager Matt Millen, who spent eight miserable seasons in the Motor City, will be leaving his gig at ESPN to take over as lead football analyst for the Big Ten Network, according to Sports Business Journal.
Millen joined ESPN in 2009, where he called college football games with Sean McDonough. He would also pop up on SportsCenter and other ESPN programs as an analyst, much to the disdain of Lions fans everywhere.
During his tenure as general manager in Detroit, the Lions had the worst eight-year record in modern NFL history, winning just 31 games, according to Wikipedia. This, along with many other questionable moves, led Millen to one of the top spots on Detroit sports fans' most hated list.
So, it should excite Lions fans immensely to know that there's a pretty good chance Millen will be calling games featuring the University of Michigan and Michigan State in the future.
Obviously, that above statement is smothered in sarcasm. Matt Millen sucks.
