Sounders FC play-by-play man Arlo White is great at what he does. That’s no surprise.

So it likewise shouldn’t be a surprise that other broadcast companies would pursue his services for next season. That’s exactly what Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl has reported this afternoon.

Citing sources, Wahl wrote that NBC Sports is currently pursuing White and also FOX Soccer’s Kyle Martino for broadcasts next year. NBC Sports’ three-year TV deal covering MLS and, to a lesser degree, the U.S. men’s national team starts in 2012.

For what it’s worth, White said in a live chat with The Seattle Times in May that his contract was for three years and that, at that point, he planned to stay.

White took over for Kevin Calabro on the Sounders call before the 2010 season.
