ESPN is adding someone it hopes becomes the Adam Schefter of college football, The Post has learned.

Pete Thamel will move from Yahoo Sports to ESPN, according to sources, to assume the insider/breaking news role that Schefter plays on the NFL, Adrian Wojnarowski handles on the NBA and Jeff Passan mans for baseball. Like Passan, Thamel will write more than Schefter and Wojnarowski.

ESPN declined comment.

During this recent onslaught of college coaching moves, Thamel was omnipresent on Twitter breaking transaction after transaction, including the shocker that Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly was headed to LSU.

Thamel will team with ESPN’s current college insiders, which include Heather Dinich, Adam Rittenberg and Mark Schlabach.

Yahoo has become something of a farm system for ESPN, as it has poached Wojnarowski, Passan and now Thamel from there.
