Maria Taylor has reportedly decided on her next job.

Early Wednesday morning, longtime analyst and host Maria Taylor announced she’s leaving ESPN.

“So thankful to Jimmy and all of my great teammates and friends at SEC Network, College GameDay, Women’s and Men’s college basketball and the NBA Countdown family-the people who believed in me, encouraged me, pushed me, and lifted me up,” Taylor said, via ESPN Press Room. “Words are inadequate to express my boundless appreciation, and I hope to make them proud.”

Taylor makes the decision to move on from ESPN just weeks after controversial comments made by Rachel Nichols.

Following that controversy , Taylor decided not to renew her deal with ESPN. She’s reportedly headed to NBC.

ESPN said Taylor’s last assignment for the network was her NBA Finals telecast during Game 6.

We’ll just have to wait and see what she does next.
