Irvin is an American sports commentator and former professional football wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). In 2007, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Irvin played college football at the University of Miami and was selected in the first round of the 1988 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys.
He spent his entire 12-year National Football League (NFL) career (1988-1999) with the Cowboys before his career ended with an October 10, 1999 cervical spine injury in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Veterans Stadium.

Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin will not appear on the NFL Network for the rest of Super Bowl week after a woman complained about his conduct during a brief conversation the two had on Sunday night in a hotel lobby, the Dallas Morning News reported on Wednesday.
When asked what the woman had alleged, the network didn’t comment.
“Well, guys, there’s a lot going on. I don’t know whether you guys heard or not. I wanted to do your show just to share with you … You guys haven’t heard that Sunday night … I went out with (former Cowboys safety) Michael Brooks. I don’t remember, but I guess when I came in [to the hotel], they asked (NFL Network), ‘What did you do (last night)?’ I said, ‘I went straight to the room,” Irvin told Shan, RJ and Bobby.
“But I guess I had talked to somebody in the lobby for about a minute, and then I went to my room. And after I got off the air [the next day], they said, ‘come on, we got to move you to another hotel.’
“So they moved my hotel, and I said, ‘What’s going on, guys? What’s happening? Why are we moving hotels?’ And they said, ‘well, last night, you walked in – did you talk to somebody?’ And I said, ‘I didn’t talk to anybody. I went straight to my room.’
“And then they showed on camera I did talk to somebody. I talked to this girl for about a minute. They didn’t show [me the video]. They told me [that I was on video talking to her]. I don’t know what she looks like or anything. But that’s why they moved me. Because the girl said I said something to her in that minute we talked.
“I thought you guys would have heard about it, so that’s why I wanted to come on and talk to you guys about it. I don’t know what the plan is for the rest of the week. … You should be hearing it, you should know about it because that’s exactly what’s happening. And that’s why I’m just kind of hiding and waiting to see how everything comes down. … It was a minute meeting somewhere in the lobby. I don’t even remember it really because I had a few drinks to tell you the truth.”
In a statement to the Dallas Morning News, Irvin said there “absolutely was no sexual wrongdoing” and “there was definitely nothing physical” that occurred between himself and the woman.
Irvin did say that video showed him shaking hands with her before he left.
What did Michael Irvin do
During an interview with “Shan & RJ” on 105.3 the Fan in Dallas on Wednesday morning, the former Cowboys star, who currently serves as an analyst with NFL Network and appears on ESPN’s “First Take,” explained that he was told he had to move to a different hotel due to his encounter with the woman.
The incident occurred after Irvin said he returned from having dinner and a few drinks with former Cowboy Michael Brooks.
Irvin added that he was unsure of his plan for the rest of the week, which is why he said he was “hiding.”
The hosts then acknowledged that there was no media coverage of the incident at the time of the interview.
Irvin, who will not make his usual “First Take” appearance on Friday, told the Dallas Morning News that there “absolutely was no sexual wrongdoing” — and that he had a “45-second conversation” with the woman in the lobby of a hotel in Glendale, where the Super Bowl 2023 festivities are taking place.
“This all happened in a 45-second conversation in the lobby. When I got back after going out … I came into the lobby, and I talked to somebody and I talked to this girl. I don’t know her, and I talked to her for about 45 seconds. We shook hands. Then, I left. … That’s all I know.”
Michael Irvin has been pulled from the remainder of NFL Network’s Super Bowl week coverage after a complaint about Irvin’s behavior in a hotel Sunday night.
The Hall of Fame wide receiver went on a Dallas radio station Wednesday and said he was asked by network officials to move to another hotel on Monday after what he described as a brief encounter with a woman.
“Michael Irvin will not be part of NFL Network’s Super Bowl LVII week coverage,” NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller said.
Glendale, Arizona, police said they have not received any reports about any incident involving Irvin.
