ESPN fires Donovan McNabb, Eric Davis amid sexual harassment allegations

A month after suspending Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis amid sexual harassment allegations, ESPN has parted ways with the former NFL players turned analysts following an internal investigation, according to Sports Business Daily’s John Ourand.

A former NFL Network wardrobe stylist accused McNabb and Davis of sexual misconduct in a lawsuit filed last month. The suit also named several other current and former NFL Network employees, including Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and ex-NFL players Warren Sapp, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor.

McNabb allegedly sent the woman multiple sexually inappropriate text messages.

Davis allegedly told her, “You look like a woman who knows what to do in bed.”

“Mr. Davis also asked Plaintiff to have rough sex with him,” the lawsuit said, “and said that he wanted to choke Plaintiff from behind until Plaintiff begged him to stop.”

McNabb was a presence on ESPN’s TV and radio shows, and Davis co-hosted an ESPN L.A. Radio show.
