Here is the video of Lions former head coach Rod Marinelli's press conference a few weeks ago. In it, Rob Parker, a columnist for the Detroit News and regular sparring partner with Skip Bayless on ESPN's First Take, went over the line by grilling Marinelli about his family.
Marinelli's son-in-law, Joe Berry, was the Lions defensive coordinator. So Parker asked if Marinelli wished his daughter married a better coach.
Now Parker has resigned from the Detroit News. No word on if he will still be on ESPN.
Interesting that these columnists are all falling be the wayside. At least they have TV shows and blogs to run to now.
