Keith Olbermann will be leaving ESPN once again, and it seems like this will be his last tenure there. The highly vocal and controversial figure had his own show on ESPN2 during his second stint with the network that began in 2013. ESPN decided not to renew his contract but still praised him for being "a tremendous talent".

Earlier this year, Olbermann was suspended for comments he made about Penn State on Twitter and has taken to social media plenty to voice his opinions. He also has been an adamant adversary of Roger Goodell, mostly for his handling of the Ray Rice domestic abuse case. The provocative figure first began with ESPN in 1992 but left the company in 1997, apparently burning bridges at the end.
