"Michael will not be with us this fall," Hoffheimer said.
Hoffheimer stressed that Irvin had not violated any contractual morals clause. Irvin has been a regular on ESPN's two primary NFL studio shows, Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night NFL Countdown.
"This was a decision that came from our annual review," Hoffheimer said.
As much as I liked Irvin as a player, I never quite warmed to him as an analyst. He never told me anything that I didn't know, and he spent a lot of time gossiping and name-dropping. Word is that the Tuna will replace him.
