It looks like we’re reaching the end of Max Kellerman’s run alongside Stephen A. Smith in ESPN’s First Take.

In the early afternoon, Front Office Sports’ Mike McCarthy reported that Kellerman might be leaving First Take . Now, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post writes that Kellerman will be removed from his post with Smith, where he has been since replacing Skip Bayless in July 2016.

“This is not the end of Kellerman at ESPN, as he is sources say it will likely play an increasing role on ESPN Radio and possibly on its own TV show, “said Marchand.

ESPN is reportedly not going to replace Kellerman on First Take. Instead, Smith will be discussing a rotating group of ESPN staff and guests.

Kellerman, who had several stints with Worldwide Leader, has been hosting his nationally broadcast The Max Kellerman Show on ESPN Radio since last August.

We’ll see what the company does ready for him in the coming months. In the meantime, you can still see him fighting Stephen A., but not for long.
