Katie George is departing the Bucks for the ACC Network.

Sideline reporter Katie George leaves Bucks for ACC Network

Less than a year into her tenure, Milwaukee Bucks sideline and digital reporter Katie George announced today that's leaving her position with the team, taking on a reporter and anchor role at ESPN's new ACC Network.

George made the "more than bittersweet" announcement Thursday afternoon via a video message over Twitter and the Milwaukee Bucks Facebook page:

Hired just last August, it's sad to see the talented George, a more than welcome addition to the Bucks' excellent broadcast team, leave Milwaukee's sidelines so soon. But an opportunity to join the ESPN family of networks typically one that shouldn't go passed – and considering George played her impressive college volleyball career in the ACC at Louisville, earning All-American honors as well as the titles of ACC Player and Setter of the Year in 2015, the fit is all too perfect.

It may have just been one year, but considering her lone season with Milwaukee was one of the team's most successful this young century, landing a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals and two wins away from a place in the NBA Finals, at least the Bucks made it a memorable one.

Here's to your new gig, Katie George – and stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for who will take her place on the Fiserv Forum sideline. (A gentle suggestion: Bring back Telly Hughes.)
