ESPN's National Football League insider John "The Professor" Clayton, 63, will depart from ESPN amid the network's large-scale layoffs, according to Sporting News.

Clayton, based in the Puget Sound area, no longer will be covering the league for ESPN on television or online but will continue his radio show in Seattle. The layoff comes a month after ESPN announced the departure of 100 employees, including Brett McMurphy and Ed Werder.

- John Clayton (@ClaytonESPN) May 31, 2017I can honestly say that my relationship with ESPN was the second best in my life.

The Clayton layoff is part of a wider downsizing in the sports media industry, as reputable names across the board have been laid off this year.


He also hosted a Saturday morning show on 950 KJR-AM.

Clayton alluded to the ad in his announcement Wednesday. In 2016, the company cut ties with Cris Carter, Keyshawn Johnson and Ray Lewis. ESPN declined to comment on the matter for The Post and Clayton has not responded to a request for comment.

The Sporting News report notes that KIRO is owned by Bonneville International, and licenses the ESPN name.

John Clayton will always hold the distinction of the greatest SportsCenter commercial ever. Corso has been panelist on the program since 1981.
