Rob Parker out at ESPN

ESPN has announced that Rob Parker is no longer with the network.

“Rob Parker’s contract expired at year’s end. Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RGIII comments, we decided not to renew his deal,” ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys said on Twitter

It’s unclear whether that decision was made before or after Parker defended himself during an appearance on Detroit’s NBC affiliate on Sunday. Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand is reporting that the decision was made before the show aired. Michael Davis Smith of ProFootballTalk indicated on Twitter that Parker was surprised by the news this morning.
