ESPN The Magazine has hired Chris Jones to be its new “Backpage” columnist. Jones is a contributor to Esquire and Grantland, and a great addition to ESPN. Jones will be responsible for creating and developing all the content for ESPN’s new Backpage section, which begins in the November 16 issue.

Jones will report directly to ESPN’s Editor-in-Chief,┬áChad Millman. Millman said of Jones, “His stories are as eloquent and richly detailed as any being written today, about anything. Plus, he can grow a grizzly beard when he puts his mind to it. I admire that and look forward to having him join our team.”
