[ame="http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5864754"]Alabama PA announcer fired for songs directed at Auburn's Cam Newton - ESPN[/ame] TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama has fired an employee who played songs aimed at Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton before the Iron Bowl. University spokeswoman Debbie Lane said Monday that the part-time staffer was fired for the unauthorized songs. "Take the Money and Run" and "Son of a Preacher Man" were played while Newton and the Tigers warmed up. The NCAA has been investigating allegations that Newton's father, a pastor, solicited $180,000 from Mississippi State during recruiting. Lane said in a statement that all music and videos played in the stadium before and during games have to be approved by a senior athletic administrator. She said the staffer -- who was not named -- didn't get those songs cleared. The Tuscaloosa News first reported the firing.
