CBS has dropped point-spread expert Danny Sheridan from its pregame college football TV coverage, CBS Sports President Sean McManus said.

“In my opinion, his on-air performance was sub-par, his information spotty and the perception that he was an oddsmaker made him someone we at CBS didn’t want any part of,” McManus told the Television Critics Association press tour.

Sheridan is not an oddsmaker, but he writes books and newspaper columns about point spreads and puts out a newsletter about point spreads.
