Report: Warren Moon requests leave of absence from Seahawks’radio team


Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Warren Moon has requested a leave of absence from his job as the team’s radio color commentator, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Moon is taking this absence as a result of a lawsuit that has been filed against him by his former executive assistant, Wendy Haskill, accusing him of multiple instances of sexual harassment. This includes an accusation that he slipped a drug in her drink, and pulled off her bathing suit top during a trip to Mexico, according to The Washington Post’s Craig Whitlock.

Moon has been the Seahawks’ radio color commentator for 13 seasons. He played for the Seahawks towards the end of his career in 1997 and 1998. The Seahawks finished with a 8-8 record both seasons, and Moon made his 9th and final Pro Bowl during the 1997 season.

He signed with the Seahawks after three seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. After a career that began with six seasons in the Canadian Football League, and finished with 17 seasons in the NFL, Moon was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
