General Assignment Reporter
Coley Harvey is a general assignment reporter for ESPN. Based in New York, he appears on SportsCenter and other ESPN platforms.
Harvey originally joined ESPN in September 2013 as a reporter with the inaugural NFL Nation team. He covered the Cincinnati Bengals for three seasons before transitioning to his current role. In addition to writing about the Bengals, Harvey served as a regular host on the “NFL Nation TV Spreecast,” an interactive, live-video weekly web show that discussed league-wide news while tapping into the company’s extensive network of NFL reporters and insiders. He also appeared on several ESPN Radio podcasts, as well as SportsCenter, NFL Live, NFL Insiders and Sunday NFL Countdown.
Harvey has also worked on projects outside of the NFL for ESPN. In June 2016, he was part of SportsCenter’s coverage of the death of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali. He served as an on-site reporter, spending the entire week working in Ali’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. Harvey was on the ground for ESPN the day after Ali’s passing until after the memorial services that celebrated the fighter’s life. In July 2015, Harvey was part of SportsCenter’s coverage of the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Cincinnati, serving as an on-site reporter.
Prior to ESPN, Harvey served as the Florida State beat reporter for the Orlando Sentinel (2011-13). Before that, he spent nearly four years as the Georgia Tech beat reporter for The Macon (Ga.) Telegraph. At both newspapers, he primarily covered football, while also reporting on men’s basketball and baseball. In 2010 he was a recipient of an Associated Press Sports Editors award.
An Atlanta native, Harvey is a graduate of Northwestern University.
