Comcast SportsNet Bulls analyst Kendall Gill has been suspended from his on-air duties after an altercation in the studio on Tuesday with Big Ten Network analyst Tim Doyle.
The incident took place after the “Sports Talk Live” show, where Doyle was a guest and spoke critically of Gill’s assessment of the controversial ending to the Bulls-Denver game on Monday.
Gill approached Doyle on his way out of the CSN studio and a fight broke out.
“We’re looking further into the incident that took place in our newsroom [last evening],” CSN Chicago news director Kevin Cross said in a statement. “Until the investigation is complete, Kendall Gill will not be appearing on our air.”
Gill played 15 years in the NBA—one season with the Bulls—after starring at Illinois. Doyle played for Northwestern from 2004 to 2007 before joining the Big Ten Network.
