Longtime author and soccer journalist Grant Wahl just announced that he has been fired from Sports Illustrated.
Wahl said in his tweet that he was given no package of severance and that he may have been fired without warning.
The journalist has been with SI since 1996 as an intern, and was promoted to full-time for covering college basketball, as well as professional soccer. By the year 2000, Wahl was promoted to senior writer for the company.
Just before he was relieved of his duties, he was a correspondent for soccer on Fox Sports.
We wish him luck on the best of his endeavors and career. However, we could use a writer here at Pro Sports Extra! Just lobbying it for you.
