Ken Stabler won't return to UA broadcasts

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Ken Stabler won't return as the football color analyst for Alabama radio broadcasts.

The former Crimson Tide and NFL quarterback had been on leave from his duties since his arrest on a drunken-driving charge last June.

He was found not guilty by a judge in Robertsdale.

Crimson Tide Sports Network General Manager Jim Carabin and Alabama athletic director Mal Moore announced the decision on Thursday.

Moore said Stabler had decided to pursue other opportunities.

Stabler had been charged with DUI at least twice before.

He was an All-American for the Tide in 1967 and worked as the color analyst from 1998-2007.
