LIV Golf was looking to hire Charles Barkley as a broadcaster, and he met with tour CEO Greg Norman to discuss the role and even played in the pro-am before an LIV event Thursday.
At that event, Barkley said he was still waiting on an offer from LIV.
Something changed overnight as Barkley is now taking his name out of consideration for the LIV job, according to the New York Post.
“I want to thank Greg Norman and LIV for their interest in me,” Barkley said in a phone interview.
“I wish those guys great success and nothing but the best. But, in my best interest, and being fair to Turner — because Turner and basketball have given me every single thing in my life — It is best for me to move on and I’m staying with Turner for the rest of my TV career.”
