ESPN Suspends Bob Griese for Inappropriate On-Air Comment AP
ESPN’s Bob Griese, who quarterbacked the Miami Dolphins to two Super Bowl wins during his playing days, was suspended one week after making an inappropriate comment about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya, who is Colombian, the Associated Press reports.
During ESPN's Minnesota-Ohio State game broadcast Saturday, a graphic popped up listing top drivers in NASCAR's points race, and analyst Chris Spielman asked where Montoya was. Griese replied he was "out having a taco."
Griese has apologized on air twice.
