Why Did Marcellus Wiley Leave Fox Sports?

If you’re a fan of the Fox Sports show ‘Speak For Yourself’, you will notice you haven’t seen Marcellus Wiley on the airways in a while. Well, there is a reason for that. Wiley recently had a conversation with Terrell Owens about why he left Fox. Check out Wiley’s response as part of a promo clip to hype up Season 2 of “Getcha Popcorn Ready with T.O. & Hatch” is on fubo Sports Network.

If you’re a fan of the “Getcha Popcorn Ready with T.O. & Hatch” show, you can see it Every Thursday night at 7 pm EST.

“Some of my muscles were atrophying in terms of what I really want to do globally. I like it real. I like it raw. I like it deep. I want to bring the sociology of sports out. Our show was going in a direction and format that was going to be lighter. I have done fluffy long enough and I had done SportsNation. I’ve done fluff. I know how to sell cotton candy, but it was time to get to the meat and potatoes. No slight to my boy, Acho, but I was looking different at what I was doing than what he was doing.”

“So, I’m at Fox, and all these changes are occurring, and me and Acho are doing our thing. And then they were like ‘Lighter.’ When I heard that word ‘Lighter…’”

And Wiley says  “I know what it means! [laughs] I was like ‘I’m going where I’ve been.’ And that was the first thing that kind of made me step back, withdraw, in the contracts, in the negotiation.”

Wiley has been since been replaced on the show by Shady McCoy. It’s been rebranded as ‘Speak’ to now focus its panel around Joy Taylor and Emmanuel Acho. It remains to be seen what’s next for Wiley. However, it appears he’s looking for something where he can tap into his intellect more instead of being a loud mouth on Fox. Maybe he finds something else at Fox but it’s clear that he’s looking to branch out to bring something more unique to the table wherever he goes next.
