After multiple reports surfaced last week about ESPN TV analyst and former Philadelphia Eagle Hugh Douglas used racial slurs directed at his coworker, Sports Illustrated reported today that Douglas has been let go from his position.
"He no longer works for us effective today,” an ESPN spokeman told SI's Richard Deitsch.
Douglas did however comment about leaving ESPN on his Twitter this afternoon:
I am very disappointed to be leaving ESPN and will have more to say about this situation and my future at the appropriate time
