    The Pipeline is pretty "open" on this one since it came from my friend Michael Corleone Wright's Facebook status:

    Michael Corleone Wright Now that contract is signed, guess I can let cat out of bag. Will be leaving Florida Times-Union soon for ESPN.com. Thanks friends, family, colleagues for all the great advice and support.

    He added a line that he meant ESPNChicago. Michael's been in Jax a few years now covering the Jags. I've not spoken with him so I can't say for sure if he'll be doing football there.

    Great hire. He did a tremendous job covering the Jags.

    Is this the same guy who started out in Newport News? Good to hear. Congrats!

    Congrats to Michael.

    And interesting move because most, if not all, of the hires for the local sites have been people already based in those cities.
