Can anyone at ESPN keep a job? The network suspended Bob Griese today for a racist remark he made about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.
While he was calling Saturday's Minnesota-Ohio State game, Griese made a crack about Montoya saying he was "out having a taco." Montoya is Colombian.
ESPN is yanking Griese off the air for one week, and a rep for the network says Griese "understands the comment was inappropriate."
Yesterday ESPN fired baseball analyst Steve Phillips after news broke of his sex scandal with a production assistant.
