Former Alabama QB (and now former Color Analyst) Kenny Stabler will not return to the radio booth for the 2008 season. From TideSports.com:
Kenny Stabler will take a 1-year leave of absence from his duties as color analyst calling University of Alabama football games.
Stabler worked on the broadcast team with Eli Gold broadcasting Crimson Tide football games. Leerfield Communications is expected to release a statement later this afternoon.
Stabler was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in June. He has two previous DUI charges from arrests in 2001 and 1995.
Longtime Alabama sideline reporter Tom Roberts will take his place during this “leave of absence”.
