Shannon Sharpe will shortly depart from Undisputed. He will actually depart the show after the NBA Finals are over, according to the plan. In general, a lot of fans predicted this would happen. After all, there had recently been a lot of conflict between Sharpe and Skip Bayless. Sharpe leaves the office to pursue his own interests when it became apparent that the atmosphere there was toxic. Although the two co-hosts’ chemistry will be missed by the audience, it seems that this is the best course of action for all parties.
Now, many are speculating over who could replace Shannon Sharpe. Of course, in the eyes of many, Sharpe is irreplaceable. He is a force on TV, and it is hard to see anyone else sitting across from Skip. However, the executives at FS1 are looking for someone who can excite viewers. Additionally, they want someone who can truly deliver some wild hot takes. Well, it seems like Fox may have just found that person. Although, fans might be a bit surprised by who it is.

According to Front Office Sports, LeSean McCoy is expected to be given an “extended tryout.” For those who don’t know, the former NFL star is a co-host on SPEAK with Emmanuel Acho. This is a show that typically airs in the afternoon. Furthermore, McCoy has been known to offer up some truly wild hot takes on this show. That said, he could be the perfect fit to replace Shannon. However, his chemistry with Skip may turn out to be a problem. At this juncture, we truly do not know how this would play out or what it would even look like.
Presently, this is all just a rumor and FS1 has yet to actually confirm everything. However, we imagine more names will begin to pop up over the coming days and weeks. After all, they have to find a replacement soon. Otherwise, it is going to be a long road ahead for the network, as well as Skip himself.
