PARIS (AP) — Longtime ESPN personality Mike Tirico has signed off from the network for the last time as he prepares to move to NBC Sports.

Tirico’s final appearance on the network Thursday came 25 years to the day of his first. He appeared alongside longtime ESPN anchor Bob Ley from Paris, where they are covering the Euro soccer tournament.

Tirico notes that he’s worked “with everyone from ‘Downtown’ Julie Brown to Hubie Brown on camera at ESPN.” He says he’ll continue to be a fan of the network.

Tirico had hosted ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” since 2006. NBC says he’ll be involved with NFL and golf coverage for the network, but hasn’t offered specifics. He will be taking part in NBC’s coverage of next month’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
