Erin Andrews is departing ESPN, leaving behind the ‘Worldwide Leader in Sports’ for greener pastures. Ms Andrews’ contract expired this week, but rumors have been swirling since March that the stunning sideline reporter was unhappy at the network.

All bets are on Fox Sports, which is ‘aggressively pursuing’ the Dancing With The Stars veteran.

‘Erin Andrews leaving ESPN. She did great work for us & we made aggressive offer to keep her,’ ESPN spokesman Mike Humes said on his twitter account.

‘Wish her best on her next chapter.’

Ms Andrews’ last assignment at ESPN was the ACC basketball tournament in March.

The 34-year-old was the co-host of College GameDay and served as a contributing reporter for Good Morning America.

In 2010, she appeared on the tenth season of Dancing With The Stars with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, placing third out of 11 contestants.

‘We are not in a position to discuss Erin’s next career move,’ Lewis Kay, a representative for Ms Andrews, said to Sports Illustrated.

Though she and her people have not commented on where she’s headed, it is all but confirmed that she will be returning to her reporting roots at Fox, as she got her start as a freelance reporter for Fox Sports Florida.

Most believe she’ll be working on the network’s first regular-season college football coverage in Fall 2012.

Her Wikipedia page has already been updated, perhaps prematurely, that Fox Sports has scooped its next star.
