ESPN college basketball analyst Digger Phelps announced during Monday night's "College GameDay" that he is leaving ESPN.

"I spent 20 years at Notre Dame as a coach and now 20 years here at ESPN doing a great job with all you people. And now it's time for me to move forward, and this will be my last time on TV," Phelps said.

Phelps added: "It's been a great run. Twenty years is always my target for everything, and it's time to move forward."

In his final pick, Phelps chose Kentucky to beat UConn 72-68 in Monday's national championship game.

"We wish Digger the very best as he explores his next chapter," ESPN said in a statement.
