A source with knowledge of the situation has informed PSP that Bob Rigby will not be returning as Philadelphia Union’s color commentator for the 2013 season.
Rigby, a former US International goalkeeper who won the NASL championship with the Philadelphia Atoms in 1973 and was the first soccer player featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, joined JP Dellacamera in the booth for the 2012 season after previously serving as a sideline reporter. Rigby follows Taylor Twellman and Kyle Martino in vacating the color commentator’s post after only one season.
When reached for comment on Rigby’s replacement, a Union representative told PSP that while they could not disclose anything at present, “We should be releasing our broadcast talent and local schedule next week.”
