Michele Tafoya, a "MNF" sideline reporter since '04, is leaving ESPN. Sources say Tafoya likely will move to NBC, which produces "Sunday Night Football." It is not known what her role at NBC will be. ESPN and Tafoya had been negotiating a three-year option in her deal, which was signed before the '08 season, but both sides decided to end the agreement yesterday. Along with Suzy Kolber, Tafoya was taken off the "MNF" sidelines two seasons ago and offered reports every 20 minutes for the network's five hours worth of pregame shows. Tafoya joined ESPN in '00. Tafoya also served as a sideline reporter for ESPN's NBA telecasts until '08.
