Seth Davis Laid Off at Sports Illustrated

After twenty two years of employment, Seth Davis‘ time with Sports Illustrated has expired. The news was relayed Thursday to Davis when the company elected to eliminate five members of its staff.

Davis has become a familiar face over the years to sports television viewers. He’s recognized most for his analysis work CBS Sports’ March Madness Selection Sunday show, where he appears alongside Greg Gumbel and Clark Kellogg.

In addition, Davis hosts “The Seth Davis Show” for Campus Insiders. He has also hosted his own podcast, “The Seth Davis Podcast” through DGital Media, who work in tandem with SI. Whether Davis’ podcast will continue or not remains to be seen.

The Big Lead’s Ryan Glasspiegel caught up with Davis after he learned of his dismissal from  SI. Consistent with his character, Davis took the high road, adding “I have not an ounce of regret or bitterness. This is the way the industry is headed. SI is a great place with great people.”
