However, Sean became the odd man out in December 1999 as the CBS Sports President Sean McManus decided against renewing McDonough’s contract. Following that, he moved to ESPN in 2000. 

Since his joining on one of the biggest sports networks, Sean covered a great many important sports events, also contributing to the ESPN’s coverage of the U.S. Open and British Open golf tournaments. 

Then, back in 2012, after being diagnosed with a superior canal dehiscence syndrome (SCDS), he went through surgery, which kept him from working for several months. 

But then he never could stay away from his one true passion; eventually, returning to the action on ESPN Radio.

Married To Wife?

Despite basking on wealthy professional success, the sports-casting maestro is as confined as a closed book when it comes to revealing his relationship status. 

And, at a time like this, not even his social media accounts come to our assistance.

That being the fact, it is not exactly the apt moment to comment on his married status. 

Gay Speculations?

Courtesy of Sean's decision to keep his private affairs under the wraps, most of the people keep on stacking up the speculation about his sexual preference.

Either living happily with the wife or leading a gay life, until and unless the man himself addresses his situation, it is partly fair to speculate anything.

And, although Sean’s off-screen life remains a mystery, his professional charisma is always there to feast the prying eyes.
