Kendall Gill Suspended from CSN Chicago
On Tuesday, former Illinois star and 15-year NBA veteran Kendall Gill was involved in a physical altercation in the Comcast SportsNet Chicago newsroom with former Northwestern standout and current Big Ten Network analyst Tim Doyle.
Gill was upset about Doyle calling him out during an earlier taping of “Sports Talk Live,” leading to a shoving match in which Gill allegedly threw a punch at Doyle. As a result, Gill — a Bulls analyst for CSN Chicago — has been temporarily removed from his on-air duties.
“We’re looking further into the incident that took place in our newsroom earlier today,” said CSN Chicago news director Kevin Cross in a statement on Tuesday night. “Until the investigation is complete, Kendall Gill will not be appearing on our air.”
