Legendary Sportscaster Bob Costas is close to cutting ties with NBC.

The New York Post reports Costas is under contract until at least 2021 but may end the deal three years early.

66-year-old Costas has been with NBC for nearly 30 years covering Olympics, Super Bowls, and World Series.

Costas spoke to USA Today last week saying “Sometimes you get to a point where it is not a fit anymore” He added: “It doesn’t mean that anyone is angry or upset.”

Costas wants to pursue an interview show that will stretch beyond sports.

He teased that the network he has called home since 1979 is not likely to be in his long-term future.
