Jamie Horowitz will not be leaving First Take – yet

There's some bad news for the legions of First Take haters out there – producer Jamie Horowitz will not be leaving the show to produce Today, at least not in the immediate future.

According to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal, ESPN is forcing Horowitz to honor his contract, which reportedly runs for multiple years. Comcast and ESPN were in negotiations for Horowitz to move over to NBC, but those talks broke down this week and Horowitz will remain with the mothership.

What's next for him? Oh I don't know, maybe more talk about Tim Tebow's dead in the water football career.
