Radio host resigns in wake of panning Bills female hire

Cleveland sports radio host Kevin Kiley was not on the air this morning after announcing on a Cleveland TV station that he had actually submitted his resignation effective at the end of February back in November prior to his misogynist remarks on his radio show last month in which he called the Bills hiring of Kathryn Smith as quality control special teams coach.

Appearing on a local Cleveland TV station Thursday night Kiley explained that he will never be censored for his beliefs and opinions. He said he expected to work through the end of the month as his so called resignation indicated, despite claiming that it has been difficult to work at radio station WKRK.

“I’ll be ending I think at the end of the month maybe at the end of this show, we’ll find out,” said Kiley. “I have never been censored in 35 years and I should not have been censored for this. Demand the truth. We’ll see how they feel about the truth if I’m on the air (Friday morning) or not, if they appreciate the truth.”

Apparently WKRK felt differently as Kiley was not on the air this morning.

Bills head coach Rex Ryan was asked about Kiley’s comments that hiring a female for a football coaching position was “absurd.” Ryan said his comments did not even deserve a response.

Kiley has previously said that no woman should be appointed as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selectors Committee or serve as an NFL official.
