Chris Cote

“Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz” producer Chris Cote, who was let go as part of ESPN cuts last week has been re-hired by Le Batard himself.

“We have spent the last five days trying to figure out what it is that we can do with this,” Le Batard said, according to Sports Illustrated. “I’m going to hire Chris Cote as my personal assistant to fill the role, with a raise on his present salary to fill the raise vacated by Allyson Turner. I will cover the raise. I will cover the entire thing.”

Turner served as La Batard’s assistant until her recent move to ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT.
