ESPN Announcer Robert Lee Pulled From UVA Game In Charlottesville

Robert Lee won't be in Charlottesville when the University of Virginia kicks off its season against William & Mary this weekend.  

This Robert Lee is a new ESPN play-by-play announcer.  The network asked him if he'd be more comfortable calling another game, in light of the deadly violence that followed a white supremacist rally earlier this month.  

The rally was a protest over removing a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a park in downtown Charlottesville.  

Outkick the Coverage's Clay Travis made an issue of the assignment change when he appeared on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program last night.
