By mutual agreement, Curt Schilling is taking a leave of absence from ESPN following the controversy with his video game company, 38 Studios.
Schilling’s 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy June 7 after previously laying off its entire staff. Federal and state authorities launched probes into the studios, which received a $75 million loan guarantee deal from the state of Rhode Island.
Schilling will now have some extra time to work through his business issues. The two-time 20-game winner was hired by ESPN to chime in on its Baseball Tonight program prior to the 2011 season. ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys said the plan is for Schilling to return to the air later this season.
