NFL analyst Cian Fahey announced Friday that he has resigned from his ESPN gig after what he described as “ignorant’ behavior at a bar.

Fahey, who runs the football website Pre Snap Reads and is known for his expertise in quarterback analysis, hosted a podcast on ESPN and appeared frequently on ESPN radio programs.

Fahey announced his resignation in a series of tweets Friday afternoon. He declined to elaborate on what he had done beyond saying he had, “treated American strangers like I would my Irish friends.” Fahey has lived most of his life in Ireland.

The “Mike” in question there is Dan Le Batard Show producer Mike Ryan, who apparently mentioned this on-air during that show Friday.

Fahey has worked for ESPN since October. He announced he was heading to ESPN to do a podcast in July.

ESPN has confirmed that Fahey “no longer has a role with us.”
