Donovan McNabb has been suspended from his NFL analyst job indefinitely after a second DUI arrest, and his bosses did it with a statement that was more succinct than the former quarterback's rambling explanation of his situation last week.
"It is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation," Fox Sports said in a statement to SI.com.
McNabb was arrested June 28 for driving under the influence in Gilbert, Ariz., after the former Eagles and Redskins quarterback rear-ended a vehicle at a red light and appeared impaired, according to police.
The 38-year-old McNabb served a day in jail in April 2014 after pleading guilty in another DUI case resulting from a Dec. 15, 2013, arrest in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community east of Phoenix. He was ordered to pay a fine of nearly $1,500 and enter an outpatient treatment program in Scottsdale.
On his radio show last week, McNabb had a hard time explaining his voluntary leave of absence from his weekday show on NBC Sports Radio.
McNabb worked games last year for FOX, and he appeared regularly on FOX Sports Live. It was believed he’d have a higher profile on FOX’s NFL coverage in 2015.
