ERIN ANDREWS revealed her reasons for leaving ESPN a decade ago and joining rival Fox.
The sportscaster has become a household name during her stint on the sidelines for NFL games.
And the 44-year-old also appeared as a co-host on Dancing With The Stars.
She is part of Fox Sports’ main football team and works on the touchline every Sunday.
And Andrews revealed that this was a big reason she left ESPN.
She was with the sports broadcasting giants from 2004 to 2012 when she joined Fox.
Speaking on The Marchand and Ourand Sports Media podcast, she opened up about her side hustles.
Andrews said, “I knew I was never going to get Monday Night Football. I was just never offered that role.
“I remember Coach K saying to me, ‘How many Alabama-LSU games are you going to do? When is it time for you to move on?’
“And I remember calling Chip Kelly the night it was announced I was leaving ESPN.
“I just cried and said, ‘I don’t know if I made the right decision; I hope I don’t regret it,’ and he was like, ‘Don’t look back, just look ahead.’”
Andrews has only looked forward since that time as part of Fox’s premier NFL team.
Her work with the network has resulted in appearances on Good Morning America and Dancing With The Stars.
