Allen Pinkett has been pulled from the Notre Dame-Navy broadcast on Saturday for his comments about Notre Dame needing more “criminals” to succeed. Here’s the full statement from IMG Notre Dame Radio Network spokesperson, Andrew Giangola.
“Allen Pinkett, a commentator on the IMG Notre Dame Radio
Network who made unacceptable comments this week about student athletes, will
not be part of this weekend’s broadcast in Dublin. Don Criqui and
Jeff Jeffers will handle the broadcast duties. Notre Dame taking on Navy
at the Emerald Isle Classic in Dublin is an historic game showcasing the very
best of American college sports. The event deserves to be free of
distraction. Further decisions on this matter will be made in the coming days.”
