Rob Parker Is Detroit's Newest Unemployed Worker

Illustration for article titled Rob Parker Is Detroits Newest Unemployed Worker

I wonder if Rob Parker now wishes Rod Marinelli's daughter had married a career counselor, because she probably could have helped him find a new line of work.

Parker resigned from the Detroit News on Friday, after losing his column and being demoted to "general assignment sports reporter." All this came after he asked a rather unfortunate question about the former Detroit Lions head coach's familial situation. Oh, and maybe making up some stuff earlier in the year.


He worked at the News for eight years, but given the state of Michigan's economy and the newspaper business, he was bound to be out of a job sooner or later. So think of it as a pre-emptive strike. Maybe now he can find a nice coordinator's daughter out there to be his sugar mama.
