Citing an unnamed source, The Big Lead reports that noted college basketball reporter Jeff Goodman is planning to leave his spot as lead basketball writer at Fox Sports and join rival CBS Sports. Goodman would not address the rumor, saying only, “I’m under contract at Fox Sports and I love it here.”

The Big Lead notes, “At CBS, Goodman would team with the other college basketball writer who breaks the majority of transfers/hires/fires/news, Gary Parrish. They would form a stronger news-breaking tandem than the (Pat) Forde/(Andy) Katz/(Dana) O’Neil triumvirate at ESPN. I imagine the lure of potential TV-time at CBS is probably an attractive one for Goodman.”
