After a six-year tenure with the Philadelphia 76ers, Molly Sullivan is back, only now as the Philadelphia Eagles official training camp host.

Great news, Molly Sullivan officially has a new job, only this time, she’ll have to report to work across the street at the South Philadelphia Sports Complex.

That’s right, after spending six years as the Philadelphia 76ers sideline reporter, Sullivan has accepted a role as the official Philadelphia Eagles host for their 2018 training camp according to her Twitter account.

In a move that will reportedly also include sideline reporting, Sullivan will presumably be on hand for the duration of the team’s camp activities, as well as an appearance at each of their two open practices at Lincoln Financial Field on August 5th and again on August 11th, two days after the team’s Week 1 preseason matchup against the Pittsburg Steelers.

Though the gig may be short-term, it’s still nice to see Sullivan back to work reporting on Philly sports, even if it’s no longer for the Sixers.

A native of Las Vegas, Nevada, Sullivan spent four years at the University of North Carolina where she stared on the school’s swimming team.

From there, she took on various role at E! News before ultimately joining Mark Zumoff and eventually Alaa Abdelnaby as a vital part of NBC Sports Philadelphia‘s Sixers coverage starting in 2013.

Though there wasn’t much winning over the first few years of her tenure with the team, Sullivan and company still did their best to make the Sixers enjoyable to watch, a fact that made the team’s ultimate rise to a legitimate NBA championship contender all the more sweeter.

While it certainly won’t be the same to watch the Sixers next season without Sullivan on the sidelines, or her former colleague Jessica Camerato reporting on the team for that matter, it’s nice to see a Philly fan favorite remain active in the City of Brotherly Love and continue to deliver valuable insight for the foreseeable future. And hey, with the Eagles poised to make another deep playoff run in defense of their first ever Lombardi trophy, I’m sure Sullivan won’t be lacking interesting storylines to cover over the course of training camp.
