"Former NFL player Hugh Douglas has lost his job as an ESPN analyst after a confrontation with one of his co-workers.

“He no longer works for us effective today,” an ESPN spokesperson told Richard Deitsch of SI.com.

According to The Big Lead, Douglas threatened to beat up Michael Smith, who appeared with Douglas on Numbers Never Lie. The report also said Douglas used racial slurs toward Smith.

Douglas put a short statement on Twitter, saying he is disappointed to be leaving ESPN and will have more to say about the incident in the future. He did not apologize to Smith, ESPN or anyone else.


I am very disappointed to be leaving ESPN and will have more to say about this situation and my future at the appropriate time

A first-round draft pick of the Jets, Douglas was the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1995 and later was traded to Philadelphia and became a three-time Pro Bowler with the Eagles."





God, thank you! Can't stand Douglas, Smith, and co. Wished Douglas would've threw a couple punches at Michael Smith before he had left. Michael Smith is almost as bad as Sapp when it comes to talking. Can't understand what the fu(k he is saying. "Numbers Never Lie" is a worthless piece of crap.

Wish he woulda beat up Jamele Hill instead. Can't stand that broad. Btw, he used racial slurs? Aren't they both the same race?

He should have punched Skip Bayless on the way out. You're fired already, take one for the team
