"Amazing 2 have been part of SNF - an honor. I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open," Adding, "….Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF - I'll b watching!!!"

"Sunday Night Football" executive producer Fred Gaudelli tweeted "great love and appreciation" to Hill for her participation over the years. He made no mention of what the show plans to do with the opening.
