Bill Simmons done with ESPN Magazine

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 27, 2009

Bill Simmons is retiring from his Page 2 duties at ESPN Magazine.

I'm retiring from this space in ESPN The Magazine after seven happy years. Like my father and his superintendency, The Magazine was never an ideal match for me — I hate advance deadlines and word counts — and yet, I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. It's just time for me to try some new things, that's all. And you have to know when it's time. I learned that from my father.

But he's staying at ESPN.
