Bellotti will leave Oregon for ESPN

This is so cool: Mike Bellotti and I are now co-workers.

Bellotti has resigned as Oregon's athletic director, a position he took over in July, and will join ESPN as a college football analyst.

He will provide studio and game analysis among several ESPN platforms, making his debut April 17 on ESPNU's telecast of Auburn's spring football game.

Bellotti, one of the most affable and articulate coaches I've worked with, will do well as an analyst.
