    Don't know Dave, I do know his rep at Yahoo! was rock solid and he had some very loyal people. I wonder if any will join him?

    Can't remember the last time USA Today was relevant in sports coverage, especially online.

    Just posted (without the link) in the Forde thread about it. Heard it a couple of days ago.

    Great pickup for USAT/Gannett.

    I can't remember the last time someone went from an online outlet to a print outlet, even if it is to run the latter's online operations.

    Either this says a lot about the future of Yahoo (screw the exclamation point) Sports or Morgan's popularity there w/higher-ups--neither of which are any good.

    Congrats to Dave, who is one of the good ones.

    Wish I had a current email address.

    Well reading between the lines he isn't running the USA TODAY sports operation, he's running the USAT/Gannett sports online operation which is a little bit different. Sounds like they're trying to build out a network of sites a la SBNation, Big Lead Sports, etc.
  7. I have to imagine that Morgan will be executing a pretty massive makeover, which seems like a terrific idea because USA Today hasn't exactly had the most impressive web presence.

    Anyone know what happened to Morgan at Yahoo? I mean, why was he ousted?

    Any fellow reporter or editor who ever worked with Morgan would probably follow him anywhere.

    I know I would, if I were still in the business. The L.A. Times should have tried its level best to get him back -- if he'd have had it, which, at this point, I doubt he ever would.

    Big loss for Yahoo!

    Well, they lost him a while ago, but you're right, it was.

    I look forward to see what Mr. Morgan can do to help USA Today Sports become a competition to the bigger outlets.
