ESPN apologized Jan. 8 for comments made by the network’s Brent Musburger about the girlfriend of a football player shown during the Jan. 7 Notre Dame- University of Alabama football game, ABC News reported.

Musburger called Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron‘s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, a “beautiful woman.”  According to ABC News, he said

“You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. … What a beautiful woman. Wow.”

According to the Charlotte Observer, he also said Webb was a “lovely lady.”

The apology from an unnamed ESPN spokesperson read:

“We always try to capture interesting storylines, and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”
