ESPN Cuts Ties with Eric Davis and Donovan McNabb

After being named in an NFL Network sexual harassment investigation and being suspended by ESPN while the matter was further researched, John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal reports that the worldwide leader in sports has chosen to part ways with Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis. In a lawsuit brought forward by former NFL Network stylist Jami Cantor, McNabb is accused of sending inappropriate text messages and Davis is accused of rubbing his body against the woman and making uncomfortable comments.

As a result of the lawsuit, former NFL players turned analysts Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans remain suspended by the NFL Network pending an investigation. Bill Simmons’ media group which runs The Ringer has placed President Eric Weinberger on the sidelines while they review the situation.

Since joining ESPN, McNabb had appeared on shows like “First Take”. He also co-hosted an ESPN Radio show during the NFL season. Davis was a member of the ESPN L.A. afternoon show working alongside Marcellus Wiley. The station recently added Sean Farnham to the mix. No word yet on if 710 will continue with Farnham and Wiley or add a third member.
