The Sports Guy Branching Out

ESPN has been developing a sports/literary spin-off site for Bill Simmons. Not many details are known about the site, other than Chuck Klosterman and Katie Baker have signed on as contributors. It will be 8-12 writers focusing on 70% sports content and 30% pop culture.

The move probably comes three to five years late for Simmons, but if it is more long-form sports journalism and less bloggy, Deadspin/Barstool then it’ll be a welcome addition. [via allthingsd]
