Jeremy Roenick, who was suspended by NBC Sports in December for making inappropriate remarks about his co-workers during a podcast, is no longer with the network.
"He won’t be returning to NBC Sports. We have no further comment," an NBC Sports spokesperson told USA TODAY Sports in an email.
Roenick also confirmed the news in a video message on his Twitter account.
"I'm very disappointed and angry today," he said. "I will not be returning to NBC. Though disappointed, I'm also grateful that I had the opportunity to share my love, my passion, my knowledge of the game with millions of people, millions of fans and for that, I thank you."

Roenick had been with NBC Sports since 2010 and played for 20 years in the NHL.
He had made inappropriate remarks about Kathryn Tappen, Patrick Sharp and Anson Carter during an appearance on the Spittin' Chiclets podcast.
He issued a public apology on Twitter last month.
Roenick thanked the fans who sent him messages of support.
"Even though I am leaving NBC, I will not be gone long," he said. "I will be back better and more motivated to bring you the best entertainment and the best that I have for the game of hockey."
