It’s bad enough that Dallas fans have to host a Cowboy-free Super Bowl in their shiny new stadium, but they also have to console one of their favorite heroes.

Troy Aikman is separating from his wife of 10 years, Rhonda. The quarterback turned sportscaster stated to the Dallas Morning News “”We remain deeply committed to our children and respectfully ask that you honor our family’s privacy during this period of adjustment.”

Aikman, 44, led the Dallas Cowboys to 3 Super Bowl wins and will be part of the broadcast team for Super Bowl featuring the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Feb. 6 at Cowboy Stadium. The couple has two daughters together. Rhonda Aikman has a daughter from a previous marriage.
