The rumor mill is turning regarding the future of a longtime ESPN on-air talent.

According to Sports by Brooks, Michelle Beadle will "probably" no longer have a regular role on ESPN, and the company is considering moving her to ABC.

Just a month ago, the same outlet reported that Beadle would not be returning next season as the host of "NBA Countdown." The network responded to the report by saying they have not made a decision about the program's future at this time.

Prior to her gig on the network's top basketball program, Beadle was a co-host on ESPN's morning show, "Get Up." According to Sports by Brooks, the network was ready to move on after Beadle's comments made on a late-August episode of the program in which she expressed her refusal to watch any form of football.

Beadle's decision stemmed in part from the Ohio State University suspending football coach Urban Meyer for three games for his mismanagement of the scandal surrounding ousted assistant coach Zach Smith's history of domestic abuse. Beadle insisted that the sport of football chronically victimizes women and people of color, and she would no longer speak about the sport on the program. Shortly afterward, she was shifted over to "NBA Countdown."

ESPN has not confirmed or denied the rumors of Michelle Beadle's status, and we won't find out until the company sends out an official statement in regards to her future.
