has lost his job at SiriusXM for his Off Campus show & I am extremely mad…They told him right after his mother passed …He will still be on the ACC Network in the mornings …He made my 1 hour ride home from work much more enjoyable

ESPNU isn't actually run by ESPN they just have an agreement to use the name. Sirius actually runs the channel. The ACCN is run by ESPN and would exist even if there was no Sirius.

Did he elaborate on the ACCN show this morning?

All I saw was him posting on Twitter that the show was ending and he was looking forward to the next opportunity. I didn’t know if that meant he was terminated or if they just couldn’t agree on new contract terms.

I really like Off Campus and its one of my favorite shows on the radio. Enjoy listening to it on the ride home. However - I also like to listen to Jim Cramer on CNBC. Not having Pack on will at least make the decision of which station to listen to easier.... sorry ESPNU, bad decision.

I look forward to finding a way to listen to Pack at other times. Ill start listening to him in the mornings if I can. Maybe they'll replace Chris Childers with him on ESPNU... although I wouldn't wish Rick Neuheisel on Pack.

I enjoy Neuheisel and his views as having been a college player and successful Power 5 head coach. If they got rid of the woefully immature, non-athlete Childers I would listen more often.

That is unbelievable. I listen to ESPNU just because of his show. I liked his Clemson connection, but he was never a Homer. That sucks.

notorious for squeezing every penny out of a contract negotiation, to the point that he'll risk getting himself and any associates fired.

I knew somebody from WFNZ in Charlotte that claimed he ate up the salary pool and did not seem to care that it prevented others from getting raises.

It got to the point where management decided his ratings were not necessarily worth the headache.

I don't begrudge him for wanting to maximize his paycheck to his full worth, but I suspect Sirius just could not come to an agreement on the contract renewal.

around 2000 or so at my fav place Wrightsville Beach and ole locals weren't highly pleased..but I had no problem since he earned it and a Clemson man..

but I can see where he "may" be inclined to push the $ button in contract negotiations. Lots of kids & material stuff and an airplane to keep up.

That was the only show on XM84 that I listened to consistently. Have known Packman since his student days at Clemson. Huge loss IMHO. Is there a story there? I know his listeners loved him.

I'm sorry to hear it--hopefully, another radio gig will find him. We still have Packer and Durham.

well that sucks. he’s one of the very few in sports i enjoy. loves clemson, but has no agenda and is objective - not to mention typically spot on.

And I love his Clemson connection, I’m just not a fan. He’s a hard listen, boring topics usually and very bland insight. But he’s a Clemson man, and I do hope he lands somewhere else, need all the media advocates we can get!
