Former NFL quarterback Ken Stabler will not be a part of the Alabama football broadcast this season. The color analyst has been granted a leave of absence following his arrest on a drunken driving charge.
A star quarterback for Alabama in the 1960s, Stabler led the Oakland Raiders to a Super Bowl title in 1977. He also played for the Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints during a 15-year NFL career.
Stabler released a statement saying he regrets he won't be part of the Crimson Tide football broadcasts this year, but there are matters in his personal life that demand his full attention at this time.
Stabler's arrest in south Alabama last month was at least the third time he has been charged with DUI.
