Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter and Fox Sports have parted ways, the network announced Thursday morning.
“Cris Carter is no longer with Fox Sports,” the network said. “There is no further comment at this time.”
Carter, who has not been on the air since Oct. 30, joined Fox Sports in 2016 and started on FS1’s morning show, First Things First, alongside TV personality Nick Wright in 2017.
The network did not announce who will replace Carter on the show. Chris Canty has been filling in for Carter alongside Wright and Jenna Wolfe since last week in his absence.
Carter, who was reported to have been in a dispute with executives before the ouster, according to Front Office Sports, posted a Bible verse early Thursday morning on Twitter but it was unclear if it was related to his departure from Fox Sports.
