This according to Gamecock Central.  It's an insiders article so I won't post a link.  But said he was out effective immediately.  I'm sure we'll hear more soon.

This sucks.  I really liked Morgan!  The University is making a huge mistake IMO.

Who did he murder?  That's the only explanation that would make sense.  He's a fantastic play-by-play broadcaster!

Now I'm wondering if the fact "The Show" didn't air today on 107.5 the game is related to this and not just a random day off like they claimed.

I know, I was wondering the same thing.  This is horrible.  I like Todd Ellis and all but I was waiting for the day that Mike Morgan becomes the official voice of all Gamecock Athletics.  He does so well with Baseball and Basketball.  I think it's terrible that we'll never hear him call another Gamecock game.

I'm also wondering if he'll keep his gig with 107.5 for their afternoon show.  This makes no sense.  What did he do wrong?

Todd Ellis is a grade-A douchebag. Mike Morgan was awesome.

I'm looking forward to finding out WHY this happened.

After some more digging here is what I found:

Play-by-play man Morgan out at South Carolina

I always thought he should of been the play by play for football.
Maybe he goes back to WVOC and 1400 The Team.

It appears he was fired.  According to sources he's claiming he did nothing wrong.  So who knows.

I am sorry to hear the news about Mike Morgan ! :thumbsdow

I have NEVER EVER thought that Todd Ellis was worth a tinkers damn. He over hypes everything.
The only thing he can do well is ???? I can't come up with anything... :thumbsdow
Ellis is EVEN worse on TV than on the RADIO :thumbsdow

Let me get this straight. We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and will be fined for if we don't, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts itself from it, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's broke.

What could possibly go wrong?

He doesn't even have a good radio voice. I used to like to listen to the game in the stadium, but listening to him makes the game boring. He tries to overact the plays but really comes up sounding like an idiot.

Well they just said on the radio that he resigned to pursue other professional opportunities.  If that's the case then congrats to Mike and we wish him all the best.  Travis Haney's article seemed a little less positive in tone though, and you'd think with his frequent appearances on Mike's radio show he would have spoken personally to him.  Hopefully we'll get a statement from Morgan sometime soon.

Per Rivals:
South Carolina released a statement on Tuesday saying that play-by-play announcer Mike Morgan resigned his post in order to pursue other opportunities.

"We thank Mike for his many years of service and wish him the best in his future endeavors," said Chris Ferris, Senior Vice President of Radio Productions at ISP.

A search for a replacement will begin immediately. During the remainder of the 2009 baseball season, the play-by-play announcer role on the Gamecock Radio Network will be filled on an interim basis.

A complete story will be posted later. A call to Morgan was not returned.
