Bama Employee Fired Over Music Selection


As criticism continues to mount for the University of Alabama, the school fired a part-time employee responsible for the music selection during the Iron Bowl pregame. Alabama officials came under fire for playing such songs as "Take The Money And Run" and "Son of a Preacher Man" as Cam Newton took the field for the first time Friday. "Our processes require that all music and videos played in the stadium prior to and during every game be carefully scripted and approved by a senior administrator in the Athletics Department," Alabama public relations director Deborah Lane said in a statement. "The former staff member deviated from the script that had been approved for the game with Auburn, and the University took steps to immediately terminate his contract."
