Rob Parker is out at ESPN.

The network tweeted a statement about Parker's status. Parker, a contributor to ESPN2's "First Take," was suspended last month for 30 days for comments about Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and whether he was "black enough."

"Rob Parker’s contract expired at year end," ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys tweeted. "Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RGIII comments, we decided not to renew."
