Vanderbilt Play-By-Play Caller Joe Fisher Resigns and Enters Rehab

Joe Fisher, who has called Vanderbilt football for 23 years, announced his resignation on Twitter today after a troubling on-air appearance earlier this week.

According to the Tennessean, Fisher slurred his speech and repeated the same questions on a radio show with new Vanderbilt interim head coach Todd Fitch. Former head coach Derek Mason was fired earlier this week.

In a Twitter thread announcing his resignation, Fisher said that his appearance was unacceptable, that he is entering rehab, and that he will be "off the grid and out of pocket for awhile":

We wish Fisher all the best in his rehabilitation.
