ALABAMA — The NFL has fired former coach and defensive coordinator Todd Gurley after the NFL released the results of a child support investigation.
The NFL announced Monday that Gurley was fired.
He is the first African-Americans to coach a pro football team in NFL history.
A statement from the league said Gurley received notice from the NFL in March 2016 that his contract was terminated because he had violated the terms of the NFL’s Child Support Agreement.
Gurley said he never signed any of the documents and was unaware of any of his former players.
In a statement to ESPN, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Gurling was terminated “without cause” because he violated the league’s Child Custody Agreement, which the league uses to collect child support payments.
The league also said Gurly violated the NFL Players Association Child Support Policy by failing to pay child support.
Gurley was a defensive assistant in Green Bay when the Packers finished last in the NFC North.
The Packers fired him after the 2013 season, but he stayed with the team and played in two more Super Bowls.
Gurle became the first Black head coach in NFL History in 2016.
The former Green Bay defensive coordinator is a two-time Super Bowl champion with the Packers and the NFL, and coached the Packers to three NFC North titles in four seasons.
He played for the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings, the latter of which is currently owned by ESPN.
The release of the report came a day after Gurley and his attorneys asked the NFL to reconsider his termination.
NFL spokesman Michael Signora said in a statement Monday that the league has not yet made a determination as to Gurley’s eligibility for reinstatement.
