Olin Kreutz Confirms He’s Out at NBC Sports Chicago After CHGO Incident

Olin Kreutz, a six-time Pro Bowler for the Bears, recently spoke for the first time since he was let go by Chicago-based sports media company, CHGO Sports, in May after allegedly assaulting a fellow employee.

Kreutz served as an analyst for NBC Sports Chicago. In May, he allegedly “grabbed the neck of CHGO colleague Adam Hoge in response to a freaking remark” during a staff meeting at CHGO’s office. The two did a show together entitled NBCSCH’s Soccer Aftershow where Kreutz had become a household name for his analysis of the Bears.

Following the incident, Kreutz reportedly reached out to Hoge privately about the incident but had not addressed the situation publicly. However, when the report surfaced that the company was firing him, Kreutz said he had “already decided that his time was up at CHGO”, citing some things that he thought were “unprofessional” in how the company was ran, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
