Starting a Website to Working for ESPN- Cian Fahey

After graduating college in 2012, Cian Fahey started his own website called which featured football analysis that was and is unique from traditional coverage on TV/radio. He started by researching cornerbacks on every snap they played not just when the ball was thrown their way. The work from his site created opportunities for him to write for other sites like the Football Guys, Bleacher Report, Football Outsiders and Rotoworld. In 2014, Cian moved to quarterback coverage and dissected every pass to see if it was interceptable or not which then led to the creation of his Quarterback Catalog in 2015. Now he can be heard as the official football correspondent on ESPN’s Dan LeBatard Show and will be starting a new role for ESPN in the future.

In this episode Cian and I discuss, how/why he started, how he built the site, believing in himself and never quitting, how the LeBatard Show opportunity came about, and obviously some Pittsburgh Steelers/football talk.

Check out Cian’s site for football coverage you won’t get anywhere else.
