Late Sunday night, Sports Illustrated reported that controversial college football analyst Craig James has been dismissed from FOX Sports Southwest.

FOXSSW had announced the hiring of James last week for their college football studio shows.

James had worked for ESPN for a number of years before launching a failed bid for U.S. Senate in late 2011.  James didn't make a Republican Primary runoff which eventually saw Ted Cruz elected to the U.S. Senate.

James was also the subject of a failed lawsuit by Mike Leach which was dismissed by Judge Bill Sowder last month.
