TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- It's unclear if Kenny Stabler will return to his radio job as the color man on Alabama football broadcasts.
Stabler took a leave of absence from the position following his arrest in June on a drunken driving charge in Baldwin County. But a judge acquitted Stabler on Wednesday, ending the case.
A lawyer for Stabler, Mark Polson, said Thursday some people are encouraging the former Alabama and NFL quarterbacking great to return to the air. But Polson said there haven't been any formal talks that he's aware of, and it's uncertain what will happen.
Officials at Alabama haven't returned messages seeking comment on whether the university would invite Stabler back to the broadcast booth. An executive with Learfield Communications, which holds the rights to Crimson Tide broadcasts, also didn't return messages.
