It’s been known for a long time that ESPN’s Mike and Mike was coming to an end, with Mike Greenberg off to host a new TV show and Trey Wingo joining Mike Golic on the radio show. The news was officially announced Wednesday, though, with Greenberg and Golic discussing it on-air, and Golic’s son (not eldest son Mike Jr., also an ESPN Radio broadcaster who will reportedly be part of the new show, but middle child Jake) went off on the decision on Twitter. Here’s a collected screengrab, via For The Win: .

Jake Golic Tweets

He did eventually have a bit more of a calm tweet, though:

It’s understandable why Jake Golic is upset here. This seems like a bit of a slight to his father, as Greenberg is moving on to a new TV show while Golic is staying in the same role. And the long break-up period (Greenberg will continue with the show until next January) is going to be awkward. But still, it’s not like ESPN does or should make decisions based on what employees’ children tweet. There are questions to be had about Greenberg’s new TV show and if it will actually be any good, and if breaking up Mike and Mike (a key pillar of the ESPN Radio lineup) is going to be worth it, but it’s not super clear that ESPN management are “stupid” or “idiots” for this move alone. If it does backfire, though, Jake Golic may have more of a point.

    Who in their right mind thinks that is a good show?

      PC snowflakes. All espn personalities must adhere to social justice or they will be replaced see Danny Kannell. Mike was really concerned about Kapernick being black balled this week. It goes on and on at this network which has become MSNBC of sports and the irony is most of their customers are conservative male and
      heterosexual.

    As usual, ESPN waited years too long to figure out Mike & Mike had run its lightweight course for the thinking sports fan. And even when it was useful to ESPN in its day, Golic was as interesting as listening to your father tell you for the 1,252nd time how he trudged to school in a blizzard. Willfully ignoring that the game when he played it in college and the pros is as irrelevant as his embarrassing attempts to use his experience as a basis for “insight” today’s game and its players, he’s become a millionaire for simply being a foil to the milk toast Greenberg.
