Mike Patrick Leaving ESPN


Longtime ESPN broadcaster Mike Patrick is ending his tenure with the sports media company, according to an official report from ESPN.

Patrick began his play-by-play role with ESPN back in 1982 and closed out his run by calling Iowa State’s 21-20 victory over Memphis in the 2017 AutoZone Liberty Bowl.

Patrick was a part of the team to broadcast ESPN’s Sunday Night Football from 1987 to 2005 and was the voice of ESPN’s Women’s Final Four coverage from 1996 to 2009. Patrick also called more than 30 ACC basketball championships over his run.

“It’s wonderful to reflect on how I’ve done exactly what I wanted to do with my life,” Patrick said.

“At the same time, I’ve had the great pleasure of working with some of the very best people I’ve ever known, both on the air and behind the scenes. While I’m not sure exactly what’s next for me, I’m looking forward to continuing my journey with new life experiences.”
