Regis Philbin left behind big shoes to fill when he signed off from Live! last fall.

Coincidentally, the rumored front-runner has some very big feet.

Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan will join Kelly Ripa as her co-host on Live! early next month, according to numerous reports. (ABC has no comment).

The football star and TV personality, 40, has joined Ripa, 41, on the show numerous times since Philbin's November departure as one of her many celebrity guest co-hosts (Nick Lachey and Neil Patrick Harris also took on the job). Earlier this summer, guest co-host Seth Meyers was rumored to be in line for the permanent gig.



Ripa's new on-air partner will join her on Sept. 4.
